Phone Payments

Payments by phone are available for all criminal fines and fees, and eligible civil traffic citations.

Accepted forms of payment are Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. The only debit cards which will be accepted are those with the Visa or MasterCard logo. A nominal, nonrefundable fee will be charged by the financial service provider for each credit card transaction.

NOTE: Payment by phone is not available for traffic citations that require proof of valid registration, driver license, or insurance.

Automated Pay-by-Phone:
(For civil traffic payments only)

If you are within 30 days from the date you received your traffic ticket, and you would like to pay your ticket and are not attending driver improvement school, you can call our automated voice response telephone line at (855) 984-1187 to make your payment 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.

The system will prompt you for your driver license number and date of birth, and will then walk you through making your payment.
