DMV only processes New York City traffic tickets

All non-criminal traffic violation tickets issued in the 5 boroughs of New York City (Manhattan, the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, and Staten Island) are adjudicated by the Department of Motor Vehicles Traffic Violations Bureau (TVB).

TVB does not handle tickets returnable to local courts or the following violation types:

  • Parking
  • Red light camera
  • Speed camera
  • Misdemeanor or Felony offenses (for example, DWI)

The Traffic Violations Bureau does not adjudicate tickets outside of New York City. See information about tickets received outside of New York City.

Traffic tickets that are issued outside of New York City are processed in the criminal or traffic court of the city, county, town, or village where the alleged offense took place. For questions about those tickets or information regarding how to plead to or pay a ticket issued outside New York City, contact the local court directly
