Traffic Violation Bureau, or TVB, tickets are for traffic or moving violations, according to the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles. With this type of ticket, you have the option of paying it through one of the accepted methods or scheduling a hearing if you are pleading not-guilty to the traffic offense. This is only for New York City and Rochester speeding tickets. Other cities have specific instructions on the back of the ticket, which is based on the city it was issued in.

The traffic ticket number and DMV ID number is needed, which is available on the New York State driver's license, says the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles. If paying it online, select guilty or not guilty when paying it, or request a hearing. Pay the fines and fees as requested by using a credit or debit card. If the ticket is not found in the online system, either wait a few days or use one of the other methods to pay it. To mail the ticket, send the payment and plea to the Traffic Violations Plea Unit, P.O. Box 2950 ESP, Albany, NY, 12220-0960.
