Lost Traffic Ticket in Delaware
If you've lost your DE traffic ticket, you can obtain ticket information from the Voluntary Assessment Center. You'll need specific details about your traffic violation, such as deadlines, ticket fines, and plea/payment methods.
NOTE: For traffic tickets issued in a municipality, you'll need to contact the appropriate Alderman's court.

Delaware doesn't have an online traffic ticket search to help you find your lost ticket.
It's okay if you don't remember where you received your DE traffic ticket, because regardless of which plea option you choose (see below), a representative from the Voluntary Assessment Center at (302) 739-6911 can look up your lost traffic ticket information.
NOTE: The Delaware Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) cannot provide details about your lost ticket. However, the DMV representative may be able to guide you in the right direction and help you find ticket information.
To get information about a lost traffic citation, you can also access information about every traffic court in the state from the Delaware State Courts website.
Once you find your lost traffic ticket information from the Delaware traffic courts, you can plead one of two ways to your traffic violation:
- Voluntary assessment (which is similar to the “guilty" option in other states) to your DE traffic citation.
- "Not guilty."
When you choose the voluntary assessment option in Delaware, you can pay your DE traffic ticket fine without having to appear in traffic court.
Pleading "not guilty" to your traffic ticket (e.g., moving violation, speeding ticket, etc.) means scheduling a hearing and making your case before a judge. In some cases, it makes a lot of sense to hire a traffic ticket attorney.
NOTE: To get information about a lost parking ticket in Delaware, you'll need to get in touch with the parking enforcement agency in the city where you received the parking ticket.
