What happens if I missed my court date?

If you fail to appear on your assigned court date a bench warrant will be issued for your arrest. You will have to post a bond, or if the ticket was a payout ticket, you can pay a double fine. 

What happens if I did not show insurance at the time I was issued a ticket?

You must show proof of insurance at the time you pay your ticket, or appear in court. It must show you had valid insurance at the time you were issued a ticket. If you do not provide this, the state will send you a letter requesting a copy of your insurance. Failing to send that to the state will likely result in your drivers license being suspended.

What if I cannot pay for my ticket in full before my court date?

You must appear in court and enter a plea. After this, you may request from the Magistrate an extension on your court fines. You must stay on your payment plan after your court date. Instructions for the payment plans will be provided to you in court.

What is a "Payout" ?

A payout is a minor misdemeanor that carries a fine that can be paid without making a court appearance. The fine is paid to the Violations Bureau on or before your assigned court date at 2:00 p.m.. Your citation must accompany the payment.   Your citation must also be signed on the back of the citation.  If a fine is not paid before your assigned court date, the fine will double.  Payouts will not be accepted after 2:00 p.m. on your assigned court date.  If you choose to make a court appearance, the payout amount no longer applies.  The Magistrate will determine the fine amount and court costs will be added to that amount.
