Payment / Defensive Driving School (DDS) Options

How do I pay my fine?

The Court accepts cash, money orders, checks, Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.

A fine is due on the same day it is imposed. If you pay the fine in full, you waive your right to a hearing by pleading responsible. If you are unable to pay the full amount, you may request a payment plan in person at the Court. The Court is required by law to add $40 to the fine imposed.

Delinquent/late fines can also be paid here.

DDS is a 4 1/2-hour diversion class that results in a dismissal of a violation. The class may only be completed once every 12 months for eligible violations. You may attend DDS for only one violation, even if multiple eligible violations are listed on the citation. You must pay a fine, appear in court, or request a hearing for the other violations.  If you have a commercial driver license, you are not eligible for DDS unless driving in a private vehicle.

You may be eligible to attend DDS if:

  • You did not attend a class for a citation issued within 12 months of the date of your current citation
  • The current violation did not involve an accident with serious injury or death

Advantages of attending DDS

  • No fine, conviction or points will be placed on your driving record.
  • Drivers with a graduated license (under 18) will not have to attend Traffic Survival School (TSS) through the Motor Vehicle Department.
  • Drivers with a red light violation will not have to attend Traffic Survival School through the Motor Vehicle Department.
