If you Fail to Pay your Fine or Appear for your Court Date

If you, 1) fail to appear on your assigned Court date or 2) fail to comply with the sentencing requirements, a default judgment of "Responsible" (Guilty) will be given.  Once a default judgment is imposed:

  • The Court will notify the Motor Vehicle Division (MVD) that you are in default
  • Your license will be suspended
  • You will be required to pay the fine, a default fee, and additional fees to the MVD to get your license reinstated
  • The Court may notify the Arizona Department of Revenue and collect your fees through your tax refunds
  • Additional collection fees will be added to your account balance

If you drive while your license is suspended, you will be subject to criminal penalties and additional sanctions.
