How Many Days Do You Have to Pay a Ticket in North Carolina?
In North Carolina, if you fail to pay your traffic ticket and/or fail to appear in court, you have twenty days to resolve this before a Failure to Appear (FTA) is entered against you. Once the FTA is entered, you will have to pay a $200 fee on top of court fees and the fine for your charge. After 20 days from the time you received your Failure to Appear, the court will notify the NC DMV. Your license will also be suspended too. In some cases, especially in misdemeanor traffic offenses, an Order for Arrest may be issued if you do not appear in court. This order will command all law enforcement agencies to arrest you upon contact.
How Do I Get a Ticket Reduced in NC?
To get a ticket reduced in North Carolina, you must go through a program called "iPlea” and it allows drivers who have received speeding tickets to go online to onlineservices.NCcourts.org and ask the District Attorney’s Office to reduce their fine. The District Attorney’s Office will consider the request as long as its 7 days before the driver’s court date.
