To be eligible you must meet the following conditions:You must have a valid license.You have not received a deferral in the past 7 years, from any court in the State of Washington, moving or non-moving. You do not possess a commercial driver's license.Your infraction is not one of the following: Speeding 25 mph over the limit or more, Speeding in a School Zone or Speeding in a Construction Zone.
The only other way to keep a traffic citation off of your record is if it is dismissed in by a Judge at a hearing (either in-person or written).
*If you are unable to pay in full at the time your Deferral is granted please contact the court staff for a payment plan at (360) 385-9135 or come in person to the District Court office.
If you receive an infraction for failure to display proof of liability insurance and you were insured at the time of the infraction, you may file proof of your insurance with the court along with a $25 administrative fee, and the infraction will then be dismissed and not go on your driving record. If you have had multiple past insurance infractions, please check with the clerks office to determine the amount of your administrative fee. If you obtained insurance after you were issued the infraction, you may request a mitigation hearing to explain the circumstances and show your insurance proof to the judge. The judge generally reduces the penalty substantially. However, you must respond as described above within the 15 days required by your notice of infraction.
