Request Court appearance

This webpage is intended to assist in scheduling a court date* to appear before a judicial officer for a traffic citation. The law enforcement officer will not be present at the hearing.

Your appearance in court is OPTIONAL unless "Mandatory Appearance" is reflected in the amount due section on your courtesy notice. If “Mandatory Appearance” is indicated on your courtesy notice, you are required to appear in court. Only the named driver listed on the citation must appear. If you have multiple open traffic citations, please be advised the court may calendar ALL open traffic cases for the hearing.

NOTE: Shorts and tank tops are not allowed in the courtroom.

You must have your case number or citation number to schedule a court date. This information is located on the citation or the upper right hand corner of your courtesy notice.  If you do not have your citation or case number, you may search court records on the court’s website.

You may also pay your citation, request traffic school or request an extension online by visiting ePay-It.
