Moving Violation Points

Defensive Driving School


Civil traffic moving violations are eligible offenses for the Defensive Driving School (DDS). If you successfully complete the school, the charge will be dismissed and no points will be placed on your driving record.

Payment & Fees


The sanctions listed on your bond schedule apply if paid before the court appearance date. Mandatory State surcharges are already included.

However, if payment is not received by the court appearance date, a default judgment will be issued and the amount due will increase by $20 per case and $50 per count, and the Motor Vehicle Department will be directed to suspend driving privileges.

Once a matter goes into default, within a week it may be sent to collections, wherein an additional $35 per case and 19 percent per count will be added under the Arizona Supreme Court Fines/Fees And Restitution Enforcement Program.


Avoid A Default


If you wish to pay the fine, you may waive your right to a hearing and plead responsible and pay the sanction according to the sanction schedule in order to avoid a default.
