California Amnesty FAQs

The State of California recently passed legislation authorizing the implementation of a statewide one-time amnesty program for unpaid traffic and non-traffic infraction tickets. This program will begin on October 1, 2015 and will end on March 31,2017.

There are two groups who can participate in the amnesty program:

  • Persons with unpaid tickets whose fines were originally due to be paid on or before January 1, 2013, who have not made a payment after September 30, 2015, may be eligible to have both their debt reduced by 50 or 80 percent depending on income and their driver's license reinstated, unless an exclusion discussed below applies
  • Persons who made a payment after September 30, 2015 on a ticket are not eligible for a reduction for that ticket, but may be eligible to have their driver’s license reinstated if they are in good standing on a payment plan with a comprehensive collection program
  • Eligible persons may be excluded from the amnesty program if they owe victim restitution on a case or have certain outstanding misdemeanor or felony warrants.

To participate in the program, complete the Participation Form acknowledging that you understand these eligibility requirements and that to the best of your knowledge you qualify.
