It's a way to have a police officer and magistrate review your traffic ticket without having to come to court for a hearing. It also provides an online path for dealing with your outstanding fail-to-pay and fail-to-appear warrants. If dealing with a failure to pay or failure to appear warrant you will have to post a bond to start the process.
You could get your charge changed to one with no driver's license points. And you can do it online rather than going to court. Please note that while some violations may carry zero points it can still appear on your driving record.
It's not. There's a real magistrate and law enforcement officer on the other side, making decisions about your case based on the same criteria they would if you went to court in person. It just takes place through this website.
You submit a request online for a reduced charge. If you are eligible, the police officer reviews your request and makes a recommendation to the magistrate, who then makes the final decision. You get a text or email with the result.
Everyone makes mistakes. If you have a good driving record, the magistrate and police may be willing to give you a lesser charge that does not add points to your license. Note: It may still appear on your driving record.
Having points on your license can raise your insurance rates, subject you to driver responsibility fees, or result in a suspension of your license to drive.
It depends on your record and other criteria set by the court and law enforcement. Just enter your ticket information and do a search to find out. If you are, submit a request. Whether your request is approved is entirely up to the court and law enforcement.
It could mean your ticket is too old, or that you have too many past offenses or open tickets. Try a search. If you are ineligible, we'll tell you why.
We will email or text you, and we'll update the message on your status page when you come back to the website. Full payment is due within 30 days.
You have 10 days to admit responsibility and pay the ticket, deny responsibility and request a hearing, or admit responsibility with a written explanation. More information is on the back of your ticket.
Yes. The fine could change based on the new charge. Either way, you are still responsible for paying it. Only credit card or debit cards are accepted for payment. Please note there could be a processing fee to process your credit or debit card.
