Payment of Fines / Bonds

Payment for court fines is due on the day of court. Failure to pay fines will result in the suspension of driving privileges. If your license was suspended, please refer to "License Suspensions." You may want to check with the Department of Motor Vehicles for the current status of your driving privileges.
