Resolve Your Ticket Online

I wish to resolve my civil infractions issued by a Detroit Police Officer or a Michigan State Trooper online instead of appearing in Court.

Online Ticket Resolution is available for newly issued civil infractions (within 14 days of issuance) only. You may request online resolution of your civil infractions in order for the magistrate or representative to decide whether your charge will be reduced to one with no or fewer points to your driver’s license.  A magistrate or representative will make a decision about your case based on the same criteria they would if you came to Court.   

You MUST allow 4 business days after receiving your ticket before submitting your online request to allow the Detroit Police Officer or Michigan State Trooper time to file the ticket with the Court and to allow case processing time for entry into the Court's system. 

Ineligible drivers are:

  • Commercial Drivers (CDL)
  • Graduated Drivers (GDL)
