A VC 40508 failure to appear in court on your LA traffic ticket means dealing with GC Services. It can be an extremely frustrating process. What was once a minor issue has now been blown way out of proportion. The two main issues with failing to appear on your LA traffic ticket and getting a VC 40508 charge are:
- Loss of your driver’s license, and
- Dealing with GC Services.
Loss of Your Driver’s License
Failing to appear for your LA traffic ticket can result in the suspension of your driver’s license because the court will tell the DMV to put a hold on your license pursuant to VC 40509.5. This “hold” eventually turns into a suspension of your driver’s license.
You may not have even been aware you were supposed to appear in court. Whether you have a job, kids, or are a student, you need your driver’s license to function. Call us for help at 888-250-8450.
Dealing With GC Services
GC Services is NOT the court. They have a window inside of the court, but they are an independent collections agency that just wants your money. They will lie to you and tell you there is no way you can have a court date, when that can’t be farther from the truth.
Don’t Pay GC Services Because…
Paying GC Services will result in your being automatically convicted of all pending charges against you on that traffic ticket, meaning you’ll get a misdemeanor VC 40508 failure to appear on your criminal record AND you will get points on your DMV record if it’s a moving violation.
