Deferred Disposition

About Deferred Disposition


  • You may choose to request Deferred Disposition to keep a moving traffic violation from appearing on your driving record. Deferred Disposition is similar to probation.
  • Requests for Deferred Disposition on non-traffic violations must be requested in court before the Judge. 
  • The length of the Deferred Disposition period typically 90-180 days. Court costs plus a special expense fee are assessed. All fees for the Deferred Disposition are to be collected when the order granting Deferred Disposition is prepared.
  • The Judge may require additional conditions. Deferred Disposition for a moving traffic violation for any individual under the age of 25 years shall include a Driving Safety Course. The certificate must be returned to the court by the defendant no later than 90 days following the initial date of the Deferred Disposition term.
  • In no case is Deferred Disposition paperwork to be processed for a juvenile other than in open court with a parent or legal guardian.
  • In the event the defendant violates the terms of the Deferred Disposition, the defendant will be set for a show cause hearing.
  • In the event the defendant complies with the terms of the Deferred Disposition, an order for dismissal will be prepared and submitted to the Judge for signature.
