Municipal Court Payments
We accept cash, check, debit and Visa, Mastercard, and American Express cards.
Please note that if a credit or debit card is used, a convenience fee will be added to the balance due based on a sliding scale. The fee for balances of $25 to $50 is $5 and for $51 to $150 is $7.50.
- Do I qualify to use my good driving record?
In order to qualify to use your good driving record, you cannot have a moving violation on your driving record for the past three years. If you have an out-of-state license, you must provide a certified copy of your driving history from that state. If you would like to use your good driving history to have the ticket dismissed, you must appear in court on the date noted on your summons. The court fee for this is $60.
- What happens if I miss my scheduled court date?
If you miss your scheduled court date without notifying the Municipal Court Clerk, a $35 court fee is added to the balance due. Additionally, your license information will be sent over to the DMV to begin the suspension process of your license. You may file a Motion to Vacate with the Municipal Court if you have an acceptable reason for missing your court date; please contact the Municipal Court Clerk at 401/728-2400, extension 154, to obtain that form.
