Lost Traffic Ticket in AlabamaPage Overview
You can’t search for a lost traffic ticket online. You can search for information about your ticket via Alapay, but you must have certain information about the ticket (such as the UTC letter and number) in order to search the ticket. So, that option is only helpful when you want to pay a ticket; not when you need to search for one.

You can contact the Alabama Traffic Call Center at (866) 954-9399 to ask about retrieving lost traffic ticket information. Be prepared to provide certain information, such as your name and driver’s license number.
If you can remember where you were ticketed, you can move on to the county’s website (see below); if you can’t remember, your phone call to the Traffic Call Center will solve the mystery.
Once you know the county in which you were ticketed, you can visit its website to gather information about plea and payment options, hearing requirements, and contact information and addresses.
Once you’ve retrieved your traffic ticket information, decide how you want to plead. Alabama allows drivers to:
- Plead guilty and pay their fines. Typically, this option carries other penalties (such as point accumulation) and might require a court appearance.
- Plead not guilty and fight the ticket in court. You must show up for your initial hearing date to do this.
Some drivers are able to enroll in driving school and get their tickets dismissed; this option depends on a variety of factors―such as the violation, traffic court judge, and driver―but does require a court appearance before becoming a possibility.Other Topics in This Section
