Lost Traffic Ticket in OklahomaPage Overview
If cited within the Oklahoma City limits, you can search online for your ticket information.
- Citation number.
- Driver's license number.
- Your name.
Keep in mind that it may take up to 5 days from the citation date for your ticket to appear in the court's system.
A phone call is required for all other courts. Learn more by reading below.
You will need to call the court that was listed on your lost citation. If you don't know the court, here's what to do:
- Determine where you were ticketed. If you don't recall the town or city, pinpoint the county.
- Try recalling the citing law enforcement agency. If it was a municipal officer, call the municipal court. If you were ticketed by the sheriff's department or the highway patrol, call the District Court. If you're unsure of the law enforcement agency, you may have to call both courts.
After tracking down the court, ask the court clerk on how to proceed with entering a plea.
You will need to act fast. All tickets are time sensitive, requiring a response within a designated period of time. If you miss the ticket's arraignment date, the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety (DPS) will suspend your OK driver's license and the court may issue a bench warrant for your arrest.
With this in mind, you must enter one of three pleas:
(Plead Guilty or No Contest)
- Pay the fine.
- Option to plea bargain penalties.
- Incur points on your driving record (could lead to license suspension/revocation).
- Possibly incur increase on auto insurance rates.
- Possibly have points reduced by attending traffic school
