What Happens if I Get a West Covina Courthouse Traffic Ticket?
Most West Covina Traffic Tickets Can be Paid
There are all different types of tickets you can get:
- Driving without insurance
- Cell phone ticket
- Speeding ticket
Some tickets you want to pay, and others you will want to see the judge on first, or hire a traffic ticket attorney to help you.
For example, if you got a ticket for driving without insurance, this is an $800+ ticket if you just paid it without showing the court proof of correction (proof you were insured on the date of violation). If you weren’t actually insured, then it’s best to fight this ticket to try and get it dismissed or reduced in court.
A speeding ticket is a California moving violation, which means you’d get a point on your record if you just paid the ticket and did not take traffic school to keep the point off of your record. If you’re not traffic school eligible or are a commercial driver, it’s best to fight this ticket.

Failure to Appear
If you fail to appear on your West Covina courthouse traffic ticket, this can make matters much worse:

Dealing with GC Services
GC Services is a collections agency that collects on unpaid traffic tickets in Los Angeles County. You don’t want to pay GC Services because you’ll end up with:
- points on your DMV record
- a misdemeanor failure to appear charge on your criminal record
- paying exorbitant fees

Driving on a Suspended License
If you fail to appear on your West Covina courthouse traffic ticket, you’ll be cited with driving on a suspended license if you do nothing about your ticket in collections. You need to handle your ticket in court ASAP so you can get the hold cleared from your license and get your driver’s license privilege reinstated.
