Traffic Violations


If you have a traffic infraction case and need more time to pay, you can apply online for a payment plan.

Your application will be reviewed to determine if you are eligible for a payment plan. A Court Compliance Team member will contact you by email within three business days.

If your traffic case has been referred to a collection agency due to an outstanding balance, you are not eligible for this payment plan. All cases referred to a collection agency must be paid directly to that collection agency.

If your payment is due within 24 hours, you cannot establish a payment plan online. Please contact us at 561-355-2994 or visit one of our office locations (see below).

Setting up a Payment Plan

By completing the Payment Plan Application, the defendant agrees to pay the administrative fee to set up a payment plan, which will be administered by the Clerk & Comptroller, Palm Beach County.

Prior to completing the Payment Plan Application, obtain your case number and balance by searching our free online database of Criminal & Traffic court records or contacting our Customer Service department at 561-355-2994, Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. excluding holidays.

*Please note:  The Clerk’s office does not use the postage date stamp to calculate timeliness of documents. All documents are date and time stamped upon receipt in the traffic department. Please allow sufficient time for mail delivery to avoid late fees and suspension.
