If you want to know about your MVD record, you must contact the MVD at (602) 255-0072.

Is there information available regarding my fines, fees and restitution and making payments?

Yes. Once you have made a plea or have been found guilty or responsible of a violation, you have an obligation to pay your fines on the date of sentencing. When you plead "Guilty" or "No Contest" to criminal violations or "Responsible" to civil violations, you must make full payment for all fines/sanctions owed. Note: All fines, sanctions, fees and restitution are due in full on the day of sentencing. If you are not sure of the violation charged or the fine due, you will have to come to the Court or contact the Court at (928) 645-4280. To allow for data entry, please wait at least one week after the violation date before calling the Court.

What happens if I do not pay in full or do not comply with the payment plan?

If you do not pay in full or comply with your payment plan, the Court will: * Order you to appear in Court to explain your failure to comply with the Court's order to pay or issue a warrant for your arrest (for criminal and criminal traffic cases only). * Add a $25 default fee to the amount you owe for each civil traffic violation on your case. * Notify the MVD of the failure to pay. The MVD will suspend your driving privilege. Note: Driving on a suspended license/privilege is a criminal traffic charge that could result in arrest. * Refer your case to a collection agency, which will add additional fees and may result in a hold being placed on your vehicle registration, preventing you from renewing it. * Notify a credit-reporting bureau of your delinquent balance. * Take other legally appropriate collection action against you, your income or your property, including notifying the Arizona Department of Revenue to attach your tax refund.

What if I am unable to make my scheduled payment?

If you are unable to make your scheduled payment, you must appear at the Court no later than 4 p.m. on your payment due date to request a financial review for a possible extension. You may be required to complete a new financial application and undergo the financial review process. You must appear in person to request an extension on your payment arrangements. The court requires all defendants to appear in court and sign all applicable documents.
