Online Summons Payment

If you would like to pay a summons (also referred to as a “ticket”), you may do so by visiting the NJMCdirect website. Before proceeding, please be aware of the following:
  1. Ensure that your summons does not require a court appearance. You can determine this by looking for the red writing towards the bottom of the summons that states “Court Appearance Required." If this is checked or otherwise marked and if the offense charged is not payable through the Violations Bureau, you must appear in court. A failure to appear in court may automatically generate a warrant for your arrest. To learn more about what to do next, view court information.
  2. Only motor vehicle summonses may be paid online.
