  • A guilty plea means you have to pay the ticket and any additional fees or surcharges. If your guilty plea will result in the loss or suspension of your drivers license, you can’t make your plea online. You’ll need to go a TVB office. You should first consult an attorney and consider challenging the ticket.
    If you have already pleaded not guilty but want to change your plea to guilty, you can. However, you will still need to pay the fines and fees associated with your ticket. 


    Pleading Your TVB Ticket
    If you plead not guilty, you will be assigned a hearing in the jurisdiction where you received the ticket. You’ll be assigned a hearing date by the TVB system, but you can change this date one time after twenty-four hours have passed. If you don’t come to your hearing, you could be convicted by default and face additional fines, as well as the loss of your drivers license. 
    If you are facing the loss or suspension of your license or if the violation in question would result in five or more points going on your driving record, you should consult a traffic attorney before deciding whether to plead or pay.

    Unfortunately, drivers often think their only option when they get a traffic ticket is to plead guilty and accept the penalties. However, this isn’t always the best course of action, and you could end up agreeing to accept expensive fines and penalties that affect you for years after the ticket. 
    Instead of just accepting the ticket, find out whether you have other options. If you have received a traffic ticket, call the Law Office of James Medows at 917-856-1247 or visit our website to get in touch.
