TRAFFIC/NONTRAFFIC NOTICE TO APPEAR
(Reverse of Defendant’s Copy)
IMPORTANT — READ CAREFULLY
LOCAL INFORMATION FOR THE CITATION IS AVAILABLE ONLINE
AT [website address]
WARNING: If you fail to appear in court as you have promised, you may be arrested and punished
by 6 MONTHS IN JAIL AND/OR A $1,000 FINE regardless of the disposition of the original charge.
(Veh. Code, § 40508 or Pen. Code, § 853.7.) In addition, any person who fails to appear as provided
by law may be deemed to have elected to have a trial by written declaration (in absentia) pursuant to
Vehicle Code section 40903(a) upon any alleged infraction, as charged by the arresting/citing
officer.
JUVENILE: If you were under age 18 at the time the citation was issued, you must appear in court with
your parent or guardian.
COURTESY NOTICE: A courtesy notice may be mailed to the address shown on your citation, indicating
the required deposit of money (bail) that may be forfeited instead of your appearing in court. If you do not
receive such courtesy notice, you are still required to comply with the items below by the appearance date.
WHAT TO DO
You are required to appear at court for a misdemeanor violation. For all violations, your court
date/time/place are on the front of this notice to appear. Have the citation with you when contacting the
court. In all infraction cases, you must do one or more of the following for each violation:
 Pay the fine (bail).
 Correct the violation (traffic cases, when applicable).
 Appear in court.
 Request traffic school (traffic cases, when applicable).
 Contest the violation.
 Request trial by written declaration (traffic cases).
If you do not do one of the above actions, then a “failure to appear” charge will be filed against you (Veh.
Code, § 40508(a)) and your driver license may be withheld, suspended, or revoked. In some courts you
may be charged an amount in addition to the bail amount and the case may be turned over to a collection
agency. (Pen. Code, § 1214.1.)
1.
If you do NOT contest the violation:
a.
(Pay the bail amount) Contact the court for bail information. You will not have to appear in court.
You will be convicted of the violation, and it will appear on your record at the Department of Motor Vehicles
(DMV). A point count may be charged to your DMV record and your insurance may be adversely affected.
b.
(Traffic school) You may be able to avoid the point count by completing traffic school. You must
pay the bail amount, and you may have to pay other fees. Contact the court to request traffic school.
c.
(Correctable violations) If the “Yes” box is checked on the front of your ticket, the violation is
correctable.
Upon correction of the violation, have a law enforcement officer or an authorized
inspection/installation station agent sign below. (Veh. Code, § 40616.) Registration and driver license
violations may also be certified as corrected at an office of the DMV or by any clerk or deputy clerk of a
court. The violation will be dismissed by the court after PROOF OF CORRECTION and payment of a
transaction fee are presented to the court by mail or in person by the appearance date. Violations of
Vehicle Code section 16028 (automobile liability insurance) will be dismissed only upon (1) your showing
or mailing to the court evidence of financial responsibility valid at the time this notice to appear was
issued, and (2) your payment of a transaction fee.

an officer and any witnesses will be present. You may be required to submit the bail amount.
Go online or call the court for information on going to court without paying bail. —OR—
b.
(Trial by written declaration (traffic cases)) Send a certified or registered letter postmarked not
later than five days prior to the appearance date or come to the court on or before the appearance date to
request a trial by written declaration. Submit the bail amount. You will be given forms to allow you to
write a statement and to submit other evidence without appearing in court. An officer will also submit a
statement. The judicial officer will consider the evidence and decide the case.
3.
Make check/money order payable to Clerk of the Court. Write your citation number and driver license
number on your check or money order. You may pay in person, by mail, or by phone.
