Deferred Disposition

On or before your Appearance Date on your citation, you may be able to request that your citation for a moving violation be dismissed by complying with the terms and conditions of probation. You will lose that right if you do not provide written notice to the court of your desire to do so on or before your Appearance Date. A written notice is a notarized affidavit of eligibility or sworn request.

Commercial drivers license holders do not qualify.

If you are under the age of 25 and granted deferred disposition, you must also complete a Driving Safety Course.

Eligibility Requirements for Deferred Disposition:

  1. You must enter a written plea of Guilty or No Contest.
  2. You must pay the fee in full by your court date. The Deferred Disposition Fee is $299.00.
