While the procedures for traffic tickets vary for different traffic courts and jurisdictions, many states allow drivers to check the status of a traffic ticket online, according to DMV.org. DMV.org provides a summary of traffic ticket procedures for all 50 states on its website.
A driver can check the status of his driving record by ordering a copy through his state's Department of Motor Vehicles. A driving record provides the status of past traffic tickets, not including parking tickets, as well as the status of the driver's license, explains DMV.org. Any traffic violations are listed, including a description of the incident, any penalties and the date of the violation.
