SUMMARY: Find Traffic Ticket Information

If you need to find a lost traffic ticket, you'll typically need to contact the agency that issued it. The issuing agency should be able to find traffic citation numbers with your name, license number, and the date of traffic violation. Some traffic courts provide online ticket finders that allow you to find tickets by driver's license numbers or license plate numbers.

Just because you shouldn't move too fast on the roads, doesn't mean you shouldn't put the pedal to the metal tracking down a lost traffic ticket. The traffic court won't accept a lost ticket as a valid excuse for late payment—so if you need to find traffic ticket information, you'll find our state-specific pages very helpful. Plus, without the actual traffic citation in hand, it's hard to guess when the payment deadline or court date falls.

Whether your state offers a statewide online ticket search or a county-wide search option, we show you how to go about handling a lost ticket. You'll be able to find lost tickets quickly and easily, so you can make a decision to plead guilty and pay the ticket fines or fight the traffic ticket and state your case before a judge.

By selecting your state above, you'll find specific information regarding the state you live in or the state in which you received your traffic citation for committing a moving violation. Whether this traffic violation resulted in a speeding ticket or a red light ticket, you'll find the information you need to know. In certain situations the information may also apply to a lost parking ticket, but check that page or verify with your local traffic court to make sure.
