Address all mail to:

After Payment

When full payment of the bail or fine and fees is received by the court, the citation/case is closed and the Conviction Notice for the original or amended violation is sent to the Department of Motor Vehicles or the State Repository.

Additional Payment Information

Please note that courts in the State of Nevada do not send notices of appearance regarding court dates on traffic citations. Your court date is stated on your citation. The court requests you wait a period of two weeks from the time you have received your citation before making a payment online in order to allow internal processing on your case. If your ticket is past its court date, you are responsible for additional fees. If you fail to pay, your ticket will be treated as outstanding by the court and you will remain responsible for those unpaid fees. The court will issue warrants, suspend driver licenses, and/or may report unpaid fees to credit reporting agencies.

If you are making payment for either a traffic citation or a criminal case and a warrant for your arrest has been issued for a failure to appear, failure to pay fine, failure to complete sentencing requirements or for any other reason, your payment will be rejected during the court’s normal operating hours. You must contact the court staff to resolve any outstanding warrants. PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT PAYING ONLINE FOR CASES THAT HAVE ALREADY GONE TO WARRANT WILL NOT PREVENT YOU FROM BEING ARRESTED.

Further, if you make a payment online for a matter filed in another court’s jurisdiction, you are responsible for any pending actions arising from the court of jurisdiction for failure to pay timely. It is not the responsibility of the courts to process payments for other agencies.  Your payment will be rejected with no notice to you.
