FAILURE TO APPEAR MAY RESULT IN A DEFAULT CONVICTION
The Nassau County Traffic and Parking Violations Agency's mission is to maintain and enhance both pedestrian and vehicular safety through education and timely adjudication of parking and traffic violations.
To avoid waiting in line, it is recommended that payments be made by mail unless an appearance is required for your violation and/or you wish to contest your ticket. Payments may also be made in person.
Don't delay! Failure to respond by payment deadlines may result in increased fines and/or license suspension. Driving with a suspended license is a crime. A felony conviction may result in fines of up to $5,000, jail, probation, or confiscation of your vehicle.
Payments are accepted as cash, certified check, personal check, money order, and MasterCard and Visa credit cards are now accepted. Please be advised that credit card companies impose a processing fee.
To those motorists/operators that receive an impending suspension warning letter from New York State Department of Motor Vehicles (NYS DMV), YOU MUST APPEAR at the NCTPVA before the date set forth in the letter. Failure to appear before that date will result in a suspension and an additional $70 Suspension lift fee assessed by NYSDMV.
All personal appearances are scheduled at 9 A.M. unless indicated otherwise on a ticket or notice.
If you have been scheduled to appear, please allow yourself ample travel time in order to find parking and to pass through security. You will be required to pass through a metal detector when entering the building and must also present a valid photo ID. Laptop computers are strictly prohibited; cell phones are permitted but must be turned off at all times. Please don’t forget to bring quarters and dollar bills for the parking meters.
