PAY A TICKET WITHOUT COMING TO COURT
Many traffic tickets filed in County Court are for minor infractions of the law. Examples of traffic infractions are improper left turn, minor speeding violations, defective vehicle, obstructed view, stop sign, and red light violations. Infractions can be paid without making a court appearance.
If there is a fine amount listed on the front of your ticket, you can pay the ticket online, by mail, or in person. Visa, MasterCard, Discover, cash, money order or personal check are acceptable forms of payment. The Court does not accept payments by phone. If you do not know your ticket number, you can do a Search by Name and find all your cases that can be paid online.
In the majority of cases, paying prior to the court date results in a reduction of points reported to the Department of Motor Vehicle. Read your ticket carefully to see if this applies to you. If you pay by mail, make sure you sign the ticket stating you are pleading guilty, and mail the signed copy along with your payment to Denver County Court, 1437 Bannock Street, Room 135, Denver, Colorado 80202. Checks should be made payable to the Manager of Finance.
If there is no fine amount listed on the ticket, you must appear in court on the date and time listed on your ticket.
