What happens if I miss my court date?

No Court Appearance Required Ticket

If you have not paid your ticket by the date indicated on your ticket you are in default, however, we do give a 10 day grace period after that date before we send what is called a Failure to Comply Notice. If you receive this notice it will give you another date to have it paid by or we can notify the Secretary of State of your non-compliance.

Court Appearance Required Ticket

If you fail to appear for a court appearance required ticket multiple things could happen. A warrant for your arrest could issue, a default judgment could be entered, or if a bond was posted a bond forfeiture notice could be issued.
