Frequent Questions

When is my court date? Do I have to appear?
If the “court appearance required” box has not been checked and if the charge is listed on the Statewide Violations Bureau Schedule, you may pay the fine without going to court. If you pay your fine without going to court, you will be pleading guilty and giving up your right to a trial and an attorney.
