DMV to End Ticket Amnesty Program Tomorrow

Thursday, January 26, 2012
Program Provides an Opportunity for Public to Clear Old Debts to the District

(WASHINGTON, DC) – Customers have one final day to take advantage of the District Department of Motor Vehicles (DC DMV) ticket amnesty program, which allows customers to pay outstanding tickets issued prior to January 1, 2010, without the penalties. The program will end on Friday, January 27. After amnesty ends, all penalties will return to all parking, photo-enforcement and moving violation tickets issued before January 2010, unless a payment plan has been established.

As expected, volume this week at DC DMV Adjudication Services is extremely heavy. Customers are encouraged to pay online at or call 866-893-5023.

"We expected customers to take advantage of this program and they did," said Lucinda Babers, Director of the Department of Motor Vehicles. "This type of incentive isn't granted often, so people should not wait and think they can take advantage of the next ticket amnesty program."

To date, the District has collected $3,509,934 in total revenue through the ticket amnesty program. For additional information about the program, visit
