Compliance Dismissals

Violations written for the following may be dismissed if proof of compliance and any associated dismissal fee is presented to the court on or before your court date.

Motor Vehicle Inspection Within 60 Days of Sticker Expiration
If your safety sticker has been expired for 60 days or less, you will need to provide:
  • Proof of inspection
  • $20 dismissal fee
Motor Vehicle Inspection Over 60 Days Expired
This applies when the safety sticker was already expired for more than 60 days when the citation was issued. These cannot be dismissed. The full fine amount of $162 is due.

Expired Vehicle Registration
For a dismissal, please provide:
  • Proof of renewed registration
  • Receipt must show that a late penalty fee was paid at the time of renewal
  • $20 dismissal fee
Expired Driver’s License
Please provide:
  • Proof of renewed license
  • $20 dismissal fee
Fail to Display Drivers License
Please provide:
  • Copy of driver’s license
  • $10 dismissal fee
Insurance violations (failure to maintain financial responsibility) can be dismissed if proof is provided to the court that the vehicle or the driver of the vehicle was covered on an active policy at the time of citation. The driver of the vehicle cannot be listed as an excluded driver on the vehicle’s insurance policy. There is no dismissal fee associated with insurance dismissals.

If no insurance policy covered the car or driver on the date of citation, a defendant may speak with the judge about requesting deferred disposition.
