How to Pay a Traffic Ticket in Wyoming

How to Pay a Traffic Ticket in Wyoming

Citations or traffic tickets are issued in the State of Wyoming 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 Wyoming, see our general section on Traffic Tickets and Violations.


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.


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 5 days of receiving a traffic ticket to avoid additional fines and possible suspension of your license.

  1. Pay by mail. Read the instructions on the back of the ticket carefully. Enclose a check or money order for the amount indicated on the ticket. Please ensure that you write the citation number behind the check. You can use the envelope the citation comes with.
    Be sure to retain a copy of the citation for your personal records.
  2. Pay in person. You can generally pay your traffic tickets at the Municipal Court (sometimes located at the Law Enforcement Center), Circuit Court, Parking Division of City Hall depending on the county/city. Carry the citation with you. You can pay using cash, check, money order or credit card (Visa or MasterCard). It is best to check timings before visiting the office. Also you will need to carry the citation and your vehicle license plate number.
  3. Pay via Drop Boxes. Checks can be dropped off at drop boxes round the clock. Do write the citation number behind the check. Generally drop boxes are kept at easily accessible places and include places like the City Hall and the Police Department. The envelope which comes along with the citation can be used to drop the check.
  4. Pay by phone. Parking tickets can be paid over the phone using a credit card. In some cities/counties, this facility is available between certain hours the office is open. Please keep your parking ticket and license plate number handy.

For more information on paying traffic tickets in some counties/cities visit, City of Laramie, City of Casper or Cheyenne.


If you decide to plead not guilty and dispute the ticket, read the instructions on the back of the ticket carefully. The instructions will generally indicate when and how to plead not guilty, and information about appearing in court to dispute your ticket. See our general section on Traffic Tickets and Violations for more information about how to dispute a traffic ticket in Wyoming State.


Remember that you cannot be found guilty of committing a traffic offense unless there is clear, accurate and convincing evidence that you committed the violation. Charges may be dismissed in court if the citation includes vague or incorrect information. For instance, vehicle information, time, location and circumstances must all be indicated correctly on the ticket. Many motorists choose to consult with a traffic ticket attorney to help them evaluate the validity of the ticket, and whether or not it is likely to be dismissed in court.


If you lost a traffic ticket after receiving it, you must contact the court where the ticket is answerable.

Always remember that

Always remember that anything to do with the government will have a .gov at the end. Don't go to .com or .org

If you go to the state website there's actually a link to pay electronically on the Home page.

I 'm from Los Angeles and was given a ticket in Wyoming. I had my cruise control set to the speed limit and was pulled over. The officer said I was going 11 mph over the limit. No explaining helped matters. It's then that I realized there was a designated pull over area where they pull over speeders or out-of-state vehicles. I wish I knew about WY b4 I went, I'd have avoided it. Also zero info on the tkt as where to send the payment. Pitiful that this is my memory of the place, and I thought this kind of entrapment only happened in movies.

I too got a bogus ticket in

I too got a bogus ticket in Wyoming. I literally just pulled out of a gas station, and the lights went on. I was suppposed to be driving 40 in a 30 zone. But I was driving a Chevy Aveo from Cal to MA loaded to the gills. I don't think that car is going to go from 0 to 40 in a few feet. When I asked the officer where I was supposedly speeding..he said in town..the ticket idid not have an intersection or anything like that. Totally bogus, but what can I do..not going to that God forsaken place to fight it.

I agree with the other

I agree with the other review. It is a waste of time visiting any of Wyomings Court or Records site as it doesn't give any information for people to pay their ticket that don't live in Wyoming. Such as: Who to make check out to, Where to mail the check. On the ticket itself, there is no information, such as above or phone number, did not receive any envelope like it suggest on your site. Maybe you should be talking and repremanding your officers for not following through with their job!!!

Information given above is

Information given above is useless. I am not a resident of Wyoming (thank god) and I am not about to make the trip back to wyoming to pay my ticket risking another ticket. The ticket does not give any phone numbers, web addresses or anything else that will guide me to paying the fine.

Thanks for the waste of time on your website

I agree with you completely, as it seems like they write up more out of state people with bogus tickets, give no information or no contact letter on what to do and we are helping pay for their state economy!

Maybe you should follow the laws of different states when your here? Im sure whatever backwoods town you come from has speed limit signs and traffic signs right? So its not just Wyoming, but you thought cause its a small town that your backwards can do what you want?

I go about 10 mph over everywhere when everyone else is doing the same or more... I didn't decide "oh this place is a hick-filled shithole; time to break the law!".

The fact that you're defensive about Wyoming is telling.

Wyoming should be given to Canada or Mexico. What a miserable place.

Maybe your police officers should be more fair when they write their tickets.

I'm sure whatever backwoods town you live in, you get away with more than a person from out of state.

Perhaps your police officers should treat your backwards more fairly.

yea i got a speeding ticket

yea i got a speeding ticket there and CANNOT FIND WHERE TO SEND MY FREAKING PAYMENT!! ARGHHH. i hate wyoming and hope to never travel through the county of fremont again. It's impossible to read the ticket's information. Although the police officer was very nice to me about speeding 79 in 65, he, and it sounds like a lot more officers, need to work on their hand writing and put a little more info on the ticket for out of state travelers.
