You can find information about outstanding traffic tickets by looking up your driving record on the New York State DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles) website. Your driving record will also have information about any license suspensions or expirations. There are several types of driving records you can obtain, depending on your needs.
If you need immediate information about traffic tickets, you can look up your record on the MyDMV online system. You can also inquire in person at any DMV office in New York State. If you need a more detailed report, for employment or other purposes, you can order a certified driver's record abstract from the DMV. For faster results, you can get a non-certified driver's record from several third party providers. The DMV website provides links and information about this process.
To obtain any of this information, you will need to submit your New York State driver's license number, and your social security number. There is a small convenience fee involved. You may also need to provide proof of identity, which can be a driver's license or other government issued photo ID.
If you have an outstanding traffic ticket, you have several payment options: by phone, by mail, or in person. If you do not pay your ticket, your license will be suspended, and you will have to pay an additional fine and fee to have it reinstated.
