Lost Traffic Ticket in WyomingPage OverviewSUMMARY: How to Find Lost Wyoming Traffic Ticket InformationContinue browsing this page to learn about lost Wyoming traffic tickets.
To get information about your lost WY traffic ticket, you'll need to contact the appropriate Circuit Court or Municipal Court handling your case. Be prepared to verify some personal information before the court provides details about your lost ticket.
NOTE: The Wyoming Department of Transportation (DOT) doesn't provide an online traffic ticket search.
Wyoming handles traffic tickets in two different courts: Municipal Courts and Circuit Courts.
Your traffic ticket is with a Municipal Court if a city police officer issued it; if you received your WY traffic ticket from the sheriff's department or Highway Patrol, the Circuit Court is handling it.
Contact the WY DOT
Drivers who can't remember when they received their violations can contact the WY DOT.
Sometimes, the Wyoming DOT can look up current traffic ticket information; when that fails, the representative might be able to search the courts for you.
Via the Wyoming courts website, you can find the contact information, mailing address, and physical address for each Circuit Court in the state. If the court has a website, you'll find that, too.
Although some Municipal Courts have websites, currently the main state page does not provide a comprehensive list. Please check your local listings for the telephone number for the Municipal Court handling your WY traffic ticket.
When you contact your court, be sure to ask for:
- The citation number and your complete traffic ticket costs.
- Your ticket hearing date, or the date by which you must pay.
- Whether you have to appear in court. (If you don't, you might be able to pay your traffic ticket online or by mail.)
Once you have the information you need about your lost WY traffic ticket, you can determine how to plead:
- "Guilty" or "no contest."
- "Not guilty."
For some drivers, pleading "guilty" or "no contest" means paying the ticket fine (some Wyoming courts even allow online ticket payments) and dealing with the penalties; however, this can vary depending on the driver's past traffic violations and the current violation at hand.
Drivers who plead "not guilty" go to court and fight their traffic violations.
(Plead Guilty or No Contest)
- Pay the fine, possibly online.
- Have a violation on your driving record.
- Risk license suspension or revocation.
- See increased auto insurance rates.
- Possibly attend a substance abuse course for DWUI-related violations.
