* ATP Request Form: will be available online in October

Traffic Court Phone Number: (661) 868-7208 (Revenue Recovery)

Financial Hardship? ATP form will go live first week in October (available online and only available for cases that have been adjudicated). Individual gets the form online from Revenue Recovery Services. Submit the form to the court by mail or in-person. A judicial officer looks at it, and determines whether the fine can be waived or balance reduced. Individuals then go back to Revenue Recovery and go on a payment plan. If you default on the payment plan, a civil assessment fee will be added. Will need to attach financial documentation or proof that financial status has changed.

Driver’s License Hold/Suspension for Failure to Appear?  The hold is removed once the defendant appears in court. If a person cannot physically appear in court, they can write a letter to the judge and the written communication counts as an appearance.

Civil Assessment Fee: Revenue Recovery staff will waive or reduce on a case-by-case basis after reviewing circumstances for FTA or FTP.
