Prepayable Offenses


 

Traffic Infractions and Uniform Fine Schedule

RULE-3B:2. Uniform Fine Schedule. -- For any offense listed below, whether prescribed by the specified State statute or by a parallel local ordinance adopted pursuant to the authority granted in Virginia Code Sec. 46.2-1300, a driver may enter a written appearance, waiver of court hearing, plea of guilty, and prepay fines and costs. For traffic offenses not listed below, a court hearing is required.

This schedule is applied uniformly throughout the Commonwealth, and a clerk or magistrate may not impose a fine and cost different from the amounts shown here when accepting prepayments. The schedule does not restrict the amount of the fine a judge may impose for an offense listed here in any case that is not prepaid and for which there is a court hearing.


Please call the Traffic Clerk's Office at 703-246-3764 or the Criminal Clerk's office at 703-246-3305 if your charge is not listed below. Some traffic charges, such as DWI, Reckless Driving and Driving on a Suspended License, and many criminal charges cannot be prepaid.

 

The total below includes court costs/processing fees, which must be paid in full for a single ticket.  If you received multiple tickets, please subtract $51 for each additional traffic summons and please subtract $61 for each additional criminal summons.  Please note, NO processing fees are assessed on seatbelt/child restraint violations; therefore you must pay the total amount shown.

Example: You received 2 tickets- 1 for 46.2-830 ($97) and 1 for 46.2-1003 ($97).  $97 + $97 = $194 - $51 (for the 2nd charge) = $143 total due.  

 

If your summons is from another jurisdiction, you must call that Court first to determine the correct amount since costs vary by jurisdiction.
