Payment can also be made by mail or in person at the Municipal Court Office.

Applying Payments

Payments are reported to the Municipal Court by approximately 3:45 p.m. the following business day after the payment is made online. If you need to have the payment applied more quickly than that, you will need to pay in person at the Municipal Court office. If your driver's license has been suspended, you will need to wait an additional 72 hours for the release to clear at the Department of Motor Vehicles before you reinstate your license.
