How do I request a court date?
Your first court date is your arraignment hearing. You can make your own appointment for your hearing, or your attorney can make it for you if you have one. You should check your calendar before scheduling an arraignment date as appointments for arraignments dates cannot be changed or canceled. Most arraignment hearings are by appointment only. Court sessions are usually scheduled for 8:30 am or 1:30 pm. You can schedule your arraignment hearing:
  • By Online Services on this website
  • By phone
  • By mail
  • In person at the court location on your ticket

Schedule your arraignment hearing by phone. You can find the phone number you need when you select the courthouse listed on your ticket under Traffic Court Locations.

  • Important
  • If you fail to appear for a hearing or fail to pay a fine by the due date, a hold may be placed on your driver's license, additional charges may be filed, a $300 Civil Assessment may be added to the amount you owe, and/or a warrant may be issued for your arrest.
