Why isn’t my ticket showing up in the system?

The Central Violations Bureau (CVB) processes violation notices from thousands of places across the United States and its territories. Most tickets will be received by CVB within 45 days of issuance. However, there are occasions when tickets are delayed. If you intend to pay the violation notice online or by mail, you do not need to wait for the violation notice to be processed by CVB. You may pay the ticket now and it will reconcile once CVB receives the ticket. 

If you intend to contest the ticket, CVB will schedule the case for court after they receive the ticket and if a court date and time was not assigned by the officer when the ticket was issued.
