Civil Traffic

If you have been charged with a civil traffic offense, you may choose one of the following four options to take care of your ticket:

1. Diversion Program

You are eligible for this program if:

  • The offense for which you are charged is a "civil traffic" moving violation.
  • You do not want to contest your ticket.
  • You have not attended a Defensive Driving Course for dismissal of any violation issued in the 12 months immediately prior to the issuance of the citation.

If you have a commercial driver’s license (CDL), you are not eligible to attend the Diversion Program for dismissal of a citation.

If you attend a diversion program, your citation will be dismissed, you will not have to pay the fine, no points will be assessed on your driving record, no court appearance will be required, and the chance of receiving further citations is reduced by refreshing yourself with safe driving habits and your insurance rates may be reduced. If you have been charged with A.R.S. § 28-645A3A, A.R.S. § 28-647 or are under the age of eighteen (18) and charged with a first offense moving violation, the AZ DMV will require you to attend Traffic Survival School (TSS).

If you choose to attend the diversion program, contact:

The class must be completed and all fees paid seven (7) days prior to the appearance date on your citation or you will give up this right. Note: The court will only accept Supreme Court certified classes.

2. Mail

Since a civil traffic violation does not require a personal appearance before the Judge, you may enter a plea and pay the fine by mail. If the officer provided a bond envelope to you, follow the mail in directions. If you wish to plead "Responsible" or post the bond and forfeit it, you may pay the amount on the deposit schedule listed below. Acceptable forms of payment by mail are money order or certified check. The court does not accept personal checks. If you wish to pay the deposit with your credit card and you received a bond envelope, complete the payment portion and mail it to the Court. If you did not receive a bond envelope, the Court will need a written authorization letter signed by you with a copy of your credit card (front and back). The authorization letter may be obtained at the link below.

3. Pay Online

You may pay your citation online prior to your Court appearance date if you do not want to contest your citation, appear in Court, or attend a Defensive Driving Diversion Program.

If you wish to pay online, click on the link below and then click on the “Pay Fine On-Line” button. Follow the instructions for completing your transaction.

4. Appear in Person

You may enter a plea in person on the Court date indicated on your citation. You must appear only if you did not attend the diversion program or did not mail in your plea and deposit. You will give up the right to attend the Defensive Driving Diversion Program if you appear in person on your Court date.

If you plead "Not Responsible" a Civil Traffic Hearing will be set.  The Civil Traffic Hearing will be your opportunity to present your version of events to the judge, including any evidence, witnesses or explanation.

If you plead "Responsible" to the citation you will be expected to pay the designated fine at that time. Requests for payment plans must be made in writing, and are considered only in extreme cases.
