OPTIONS FOR HANDLING YOUR CITIATION

Do I have to appear in court to take care of my ticket?

Most tickets can be handled without a court appearance.  You have options!

There are two ways to keep a citation from becoming a conviction on your driving record, both can be requested at the court lobby window.  

Driver's Safety Course or Deferred Disposition

There are two ways to keep a citation from becoming a conviction on your driving record.  These can be requested at the court lobby window.  

 

If you have not taken a driver's safety course in the last 12 months and if you were not speeding more than 25 miles over the speed limit, you may have your ticket dismissed by taking a defensive driving class.  Click on the Driver's Safety Course link on the left side of this page for more information.  

 

You may qualify for a deferred disposition. A deferred disposition is a short probation period which begins once your have your court payment.  A deferred disposition can be requested at the court lobby window.  

*You can not receive a Driving Safety Course or Deferred Disposition, if you hold a Commercial Driver's License*

For Expired Registration:

If you received a ticket for an expired registration sticker, but the registration has been renewed at the county tax office, you can have your ticket dismissed.  You will need to present proof that you have paid your late fees to the county tax office.  You can take care of this transaction at the court lobby windows by paying a $20 court administrative fee and presenting your receipt from the tax office.  No courtroom appearance is necessary.  

For Defective Equipment:

If you received a defective equipment violation ticket and you have repaired the defect, you can have your ticket dismissed by paying a court administrative fee of $10 at the lobby windows with proof of repair.  

For Failure to Present a Driver's License:

If you received a ticket for Failure to Present a Driver's License on demand, but your license was valid at the time, you can have your ticket dismissed by presenting your license and paying a court administrative fee of $10 at the lobby windows.  No courtroom appearance is necessary.  

For an insurance ticket:

If you received a ticket for Failure to Maintain Financial Responsibility, but you were insured at the time, there is no fee to have your ticket dismissed. You will need to present a copy of your insurance card with your name listed as an insured driver at the lobby windows.  No courtroom appearance is necessary.  

To request additional time to pay:

You may request additional time to pay or you may request a payment plan.  You may need to complete a payment plan form.  A complete explanation of payment plans offered by the court and all the required forms can be obtained at the court lobby windows or by making an appointment with the Judge.
