Traffic Department

The Traffic Department maintains all records pertaining to traffic citations issued to persons in Pasco County. We also collect all fines, assist those who elect to attend a driver improvement course, and set court dates for those who wish to contest an infraction violation.

Driver's License Records
A person may obtain his/her driver's license history from the Clerk & Comptroller's Office. The base fees are $14.25 for a 3 year history and $16.25 for a 7 year or lifetime history. Additional charges may apply. See Section 5 of Ch. Law 2010-163.

If you are charged with a civil infraction you have four options:
  • Pay the fine, points will be assessed if applicable
  • Plead not guilty and a court hearing will be set
  • Elect to attend a driver improvement course to avoid points being assessed. An affidavit must be signed and a civil penalty must be paid with this option

Check eligibility to elect driver improvement course via DHSMV

  • If you are unable to pay the civil penalty due to financial hardship you may request authorization from the court to satisfy your civil penalties through a public works or community service program

You may not elect to attend a driver improvement course if you have been charged with a driver license, registration, insurance or non-moving violation or a mandatory court violation, or possess a CDL driver's license or CDL Learner's Permit.

Payment of the civil penalty without election of a driver improvement course waives your right to elect.

Traffic Citation Guide

When you received your citation from Law Enforcement you were given a Traffic Citation Guide for the convenience of mailing in your payment and election form. This guide also provides valuable information pertaining to civil penalties, pleading not guilty, electing to attend a driver improvement course, and performing community service.
