ELECTRONIC TRAFFIC/NONTRAFFIC NOTICE TO APPEAR
(Defendant’s Instructions)
(Citation No.)
LOCAL INFORMATION FOR THE CITATION IS AVAILABLE ONLINE AT
[website address]
IMPORTANT — READ CAREFULLY
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 provided above in 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 as a fee, and you may have to pay other
fees. Contact the court to request traffic school.
c.
(Correctable violations) If the “Yes” box is checked above, 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.

If you contest the violation (select a or b):
a.
(Court trial) Send a certified or registered letter postmarked not later than five
days prior to the appearance date or come to the court by the appearance date to
request a court trial on a future date when 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 infractions)) 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.
