    Summary: Find My Ticket

    If you've lost your traffic ticket, you'll typically need to contact the agency that issued it. The issuing agency should be able to find citation numbers with your name, license number, and the date of violation. Some agencies 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 court won’t accept, “I lost my ticket,” as a valid excuse for late payment. Plus, without the actual 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 you must research by county, we show you how to go about handling a lost citation. Get the facts for your specific location so you can make a decision to plead guilty and pay the ticket fines or fight the ticket and state your case before a judge.
