Regarding Traffic Citations
In order to comply with recent Nevada legislative changes relating to traffic citations, the Las Vegas Justice Court (LVJC) has been updating its case management system and website. If you find that you are unable to access your traffic citation online (www.lasvegasjusticecourt.us), the citation has not yet been entered into the LVJC’s case management system. Please allow additional time for the citation to be made available online. Review the LVJC website weekly to determine whether your citation is available.
Individuals cited for a civil infraction, issued on or after January 1, 2023, will be afforded ninety (90) calendar days from the date the citation is made available online to resolve their citation.
OPTION ONE: UNCONTESTED VIOLATIONS (MAKE A PAYMENT)
If you do not wish to contest your civil infraction you may make a payment online (www.lasvegasjusticecourt.us).
First citation within the last 36 months:
You may be eligible to have moving violation(s) reduced to non-moving violation(s) (Illegal Parking 0 Demerit Points) by completing a Nevada DMV approved 5-hour traffic safety course or paying a Demerit Point Reduction Fee (in addition to the civil penalty).
Eligibility of this option is NOT displayed online and you must visit the Las Vegas Justice Court’s Customer Service Division – 1st Floor Regional Justice Center.
OPTION TWO: CONTESTED VIOLATION
If you wish to contest your civil infraction, you must visit Las Vegas Justice Court’s Customer Service Division – 1st Floor Regional Justice Center.
Criminal Traffic Violations
Individuals cited for a criminal traffic violation may have a court date listed on their citation. If there is a court date listed on the citation, a court appearance is required.
