How to Pay a Traffic Ticket in Delaware
Citations or traffic tickets are issued in the State of Delaware for various violations of traffic law. You must respond to a citation, usually by paying a fine or appearing in court, or else a warrant may be issued for your arrest and your driving license may be suspended.
If you wish to dispute the citation, you must appear in court personally on the scheduled date, and enter a "not guilty" plea. Appearing in court gives you an opportunity to fight the traffic ticket in front of a judge or jury, and most people prefer to hire a traffic ticket lawyer to defend them in court. For more information on how to dispute a traffic ticket in Delaware, see our general section on Traffic Tickets and Violations.
PAYING A TRAFFIC TICKET - WHAT IT MEANS
When you pay a ticket, you are essentially pleading guilty to a traffic offense. Motorists should be aware that receiving and paying a traffic citation could result in higher car insurance rates and points on your driving record. Your license may be suspended if you accumulate too many points on your driving record.
HOW TO PAY THE FINE
If you decide to plead guilty to a traffic violation, there are several ways to pay the ticket. Generally, the back of the citation will clearly indicate the deadlines and options for answering the ticket. Usually, you must act within 30 days of receiving a traffic ticket to avoid additional fines and possible suspension of your license.
If you are given a voluntary assessment ticket you do not have to appear in court. You can pay the ticket by mail, phone, fax or in person.
- Pay by mail. Read the instructions on the back of the ticket carefully, then check the "Guilty" box and sign the ticket. You can pay by credit card; or you can enclose a check or money order (with your ticket number written on it) for the amount indicated on the ticket, made payable to the State of Delaware. The mailing address is given on the ticket and is usually:
