Notification of a driver offence for organisations
We can now send organisations a Driver Offence Notification to let them know when an employee or someone else commits an offence in their vehicle and is stopped at the roadside by police or a transport inspector.
The notifications are sent to organisations by email as a courtesy to provide greater awareness of the unsafe driving behaviours of their employees and others and to support their chain of responsibility obligations.
Find out more about the Driver Offence Notification service, including the types of offences that will result in a notification.

How to register your email to receive notifications
Organisations with a current Australian Company Number (ACN) and a Queensland business address, can register an email address online to receive driver offence notifications.
Once an authorised representative of an organisation has registered an email address with us they will start receiving driver offence notifications by email.
If your organisation can’t register online, the authorised representative of the organisation can email a request to us to be processed.
How to stop receiving notifications
An authorised representative of the organisation can email a request to opt-out of receiving notifications.
The representative must be a Manager, Director, Secretary or another type of officer authorised by the organisation to act on its behalf.
Email your request to DON@tmr.qld.gov.au
, and include the following 3 pieces of information:
1. The authorised representative's details:
- full name
- job title
- contact phone number
The authorised representative must declare that they have authority to represent the organisation.
2. The organisation's details:
- business or postal address
- customer reference number
- current Australian Business Number (ABN) or Australian Company Number (ACN)
Details must be provided exactly as they appear on Transport and Main Roads documentation.
3. The action you would like us to take:
- Add or update your organisation's email address (provide the email you would like us to register)
- Stop receiving driver offence notifications
Please note: By sending us an organisation’s email address the authorised person confirms that they have read and agree to our privacy statement.
