California Vehicle Code Section 40215 and Public Utilities Code Section 99581 require that the citation fine(s) be paid prior to a hearing. To pay, please go to and then return here to submit your hearing request. If you are unable to pay your citation, you may be eligible for a waiver of the fine payment prior to the hearing. To find more information regarding a Hearing Payment Waiver Form, please visit and navigate to the “Protest a Citation” section. The Hearing Payment Waiver Form is available online. Please note that you will not be able to submit your hearing request online if you submit a hearing payment waiver form.
