Attention California drivers who have outstanding tickets – you may now begin applying for California’s new traffic ticket amnesty program! You will sign-up for a payment plan to payoff any outstanding tickets and have your license reinstated.
Here’s how to find out if you’re eligible:
- If you have unpaid tickets that were due by January 1, 2013 and did not pay after June 24, 2015, you can have the fees reduced.
- If you paid after June 24, 2015, you can have your license returned back to you.
Undocumented individuals may also apply for the program. The following tickets are allowed in the program:
- Unpaid tickets
- “Failure to appear” (in court) violations
Note that the following tickets are not allowed for the program:
- Parking tickets
- Reckless driving tickets
- DUI offense tickets
If you believe you are eligible for the program, you may now begin applying for the program. If you are unsure, contact the DMV or do some credible research online.
Racking up unpaid tickets can encourage the police to issue a warrant for your arrest. If you are arrested, bail out of jail with a bail bond from Bakersfield Bail Bonds. Though hopefully, you don’t let your situation get this serious! Bakersfield Bail Bonds is a 24/7 bail bond company that serves all of California.
