Once the Court has adjudicated an individual's case at a court hearing and has ordered that individual to pay a fine, perform community service or comply with other sentencing requirements, failure to comply with these orders will result in immediate sanctions by the Court, as follows:

  • The Court will notify Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to place a HOLD on the issuance or renewal of the driver's license and/or vehicle registration;
  • Driving privilege suspension;
  • Transfer to the Enhanced Court Collection (ECC) program which will take responsibility for collection of this debt. For more information about ECC, please click here;
  • The Court will add a $300 civil assessment and other monetary sanctions to the amount owed.

Receipt of a notice from the DMV regarding a hold or suspension of driver's license or registration due to a violation of Vehicle Code section 40508 indicates that the Court has reported the delinquent citation to DMV.

Violators may resolve delinquent violations by paying the increased amount of bail, which will include the civil assessment and other sanctions.
