A DEFAULT CONVICTION may be entered against you if you fail to respond to a ticket or Notice of Liability or miss a scheduled court date. You can apply to have the Default vacated either by filing a written motion or by making an oral application. All Motions to Vacate a Default Conviction must include:
-A valid reason for your failure to appear on your scheduled court date; and
-A meritorious defense to the original charge.
PROCEDURE FOR FILING MOTIONS TO VACATE DEFAULT CONVICTION:
WRITTEN MOTIONS: Must be accompanied by payment of $125 fee per violation, and filed with Nassau County Traffic and Parking Violations Agency (NCTPVA). If granted, you will be notified by mail as to a future court date.
ORAL MOTIONS: Must be made in person at NCTPVA. The fee for an oral application is $50 per violation. Oral Applications will be granted at the discretion of NCTPVA and only if you agree to pay all fines and fees the same day the application is granted.
