Traffic Department Overview

Be Advised: Failure to take action to resolve your traffic citation will result in the issuance of a warrant for your arrest and additional fines and/or fees may be imposed. Additionally, the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) may suspend your license. Pay Citation: If you have received a traffic citation for a violation that does not require a court appearance you may pay online, by mail or in person. The Court does not accept payments by phone.

Juveniles: Citations issued to juveniles are not eligible for online payments. All juveniles must appear with a parent or legal guardian.

Payment Options

Attend Traffic Safety School: If you plead Guilty or Nolo Contendere to a moving violation, and if you have not attended Traffic Safety School within a 12-month period, you may request permission from the Court Clerk to attend Traffic Safety School. Only Traffic Safety Schools approved by the DMV are accepted. Traffic Safety School is available online or in person from various DMV approved third-party organizations that set their own rates and schedules. Upon completion of Traffic Safety School from a DMV approved school, you must mail, fax, email or hand deliver the certificate to the Court to have the violation amended. If the certificate is not received, the violation will not be amended.

DMV Approved Traffic Safety Schools

Dispute Citation: If you wish to contest the citation, you must appear in person at Henderson Justice Court to sign a Not Guilty Plea and Waiver to schedule a Pre-Trial Conference with a Deputy District Attorney. The Pre-Trial Conferences are typically scheduled on the second and fourth Tuesday of every month in the afternoon.
