the expenses of adjudication for motorists who fail to
comply with the various parking and traffic regulations
and laws. With this principle guiding the agency,
the following fees shall be applied.

a scofflaw/default judgment request. A scofflaw request includes notifying NYSDMV. A Scofflaw/Default Judgment request requires sending a certified or registered mailing, return receipt requested to each scofflaw/default judgment candidate.
DEFAULT CONVICTION ADMINISTRATIVE PROCESSING
A $75 administrative fee to defray the costs of processing
a default conviction. A default conviction is filed
against the defendant when he/she fails to appear for
a scheduled trial or hearing. The scheduled trial or
hearing is a specific time set aside for the defendant
to provide their testimony and/or evidence, why they
believe they are not guilty of the alleged violation.
Nassau County brings the issuing officer to court to
explain the circumstances that caused the issuance of
the summons. When the defendant fails to appear
as scheduled, a default conviction is recorded and transmitted
MOTION TO VACATE DISPOSITION FEE – WRITTEN
A $125 administrative fee to defray the costs of processing
a written application of motion to vacate a disposition. The

clerical support and in some cases filing various documents
with NYS DMV to vacate the previously disposed violation
on the operators driving record.
MOTION TO VACATE DISPOSITION FEE – ORAL
A $50 administrative fee to defray the costs of processing
an oral application of motion to vacate a disposition. The
process includes reviewing why the defendant missed their
specific trial or hearing date, and whether or not

Hearing review, clerical support and in some cases filing
various documents with NYS DMV to vacate the previously
disposed violation on the operators driving record.
TRANSFER OF NOTICE OF LIABILITY FEE
A $30 administrative fee is assessed to offset the cost
