Municipal Court

Question about your ticket? Please wait for 3 to 5 business days from receiving your ticket before calling, to permit adequate time for processing.


Payments are due by the date at the bottom of the Summons. The date on the bottom of your ticket is not necessary for your court date - please read the back of your summons. If you are not sure, please contact the Court. If you have received a paperwork violation notice, you must still appear in court. If you would like a receipt for your payment, you must send us a self-addressed, stamped envelope.

Court Hearings

Court is held in the first floor of the Council Chambers in room 106.

Ticket Points

Please do not question the Court about points - they are not assessed by the Court, they are assessed by the State of New Jersey. Please view the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission website's New Jersey State Law Points Schedule, or contact Motor Vehicle Services directly.

Pay Your Ticket

You can pay your ticket online through our NJMCDirect portal.
