Determine Where You Got Your Oklahoma Traffic Ticket

You will need to call the court that was listed on your lost traffic citation. If you don't know the court, here's what to do:

  • Determine where you received your OK traffic ticket. 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.

Decide How You'll Plead To Your OK Ticket

Once you obtain your lost traffic ticket information, you will need to act fast. All OK traffic 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:

Pay Ticket
(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
