Copy of Parking Ticket

The vast majority of parking tickets issued in the District of Columbia are issued by the Department of Public Works' ticket writers using electronic handheld ticket devices. The actual ticket is placed on the vehicle. However, DC DMV can provide you with a copy of the ticket through this website and show all the information entered by the ticket writer. Some parking enforcement officers use manual ticket books. Since these manual tickets are handwritten by the ticket writer, they may contain personal information, which is subject to privacy laws; therefore, those tickets cannot be displayed through DC DMV's website.

You can view and print a copy of a parking ticket on this website subject to the following:

  • The ticket number is required.
  • The ticket is an electronic ticket, not a handwritten ticket.
  • The ticket is a parking ticket, not a photo or moving violation ticket.
  • The ticket has been turned in by the issuing officer and has been uploaded to the ticket database.
