Traffic Violations

The Judicial Branch Violations Bureau handles traffic tickets for the entire State of Maine through a centralized process. As used here, the term “traffic violation” refers to non-criminal offenses also called traffic “infractions.”

Please note: The Judicial Branch is moving to a new online payment and case management system. It will be available starting October 29th. The new system will allow users to do more online.

Pay your ticket

From October 17th to October 29th, traffic ticket fines and fees must be paid by mail or in person at the Violations Bureau window of the Lewiston District Court using cash, check, or money order. The public window at the Lewiston District Court will be open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Credit or debit card payments will not be allowed.

Reinstating a suspended license

If your license was suspended and you pay your fine during the transition phase, a Clerk at the Lewiston District Court window will be able to give you documentation to provide to the Bureau of Motor Vehicles. Reinstatement must be completed by the Bureau of Motor Vehicles.
