Deferred Disposition

Deferred disposition is a dismissal program that would prevent a conviction from being reported on your driving record. The probation is for 180 days and is available for defendants charged with any moving violation. Defendants who were under 25 years of age at the time of the violation must also take a driving safety course as a condition of the probation. 

Any defendant charged with a non-moving violation must request this program before the judge by requesting a court date. Please see the instructions on SETTING A COURT DATE. 

Defendants not eligible for this program are commercial driver’s license (CDL) holders and anyone charged with speeding 25 mph over the posted speed limit.

To begin this program, you will need to:

  • Request this program either in person or by mail on or before your 20th day from the date of your citation.
  • Pay the total amount due. For the total amount due, you will need to speak with a court clerk.
  • Provide a copy of your driver’s license and proof of insurance with your name listed on the policy. You will be required to show that you had insurance for the entire 180 days.

Violators 16 years or younger will be set for a hearing and may request deferred disposition before the judge.
