Traffic Court Phone Number: (909) 350-9322 option 1 or (909) 387-1470 for Failure to Pay cases and payments via credit card

Financial Hardship? Everything is at the discretion of the judge, including requests to reduce fines and fees or modify payment plans. You can come to the clerk’s window or call the clerk’s office to request to see the judge. The clerks set hearings 4 days out. Hearings can occur any day of the week at 8:30 A.M. or 1:30 P.M., except Wednesday and Friday mornings which are set aside for trials only.

Payment plans are a $35 one-time fee but if you fail to pay and need the plan reinstated then you have to pay an extra $30. To request to get the monthly payment amount reduced you can write to the judge or appear before the judge. If you write a letter, the judge will issue a written response that will be mailed to you.

If your ticket is in collections you generally have to go through collections to address difficulty with payments, not the judge (But it depends on the circumstance, and you can always go to the clerks and ask to go before the judge who, at her/his discretion might issue an order on the fees).

Driver’s License Hold/Suspension for Failure to Appear? Appear before the judge and the hold will be removed (or you could pay in full instead of appearing).
