Traffic Citation

The Probate Court of Columbia County handles traffic citations issued by the Columbia County Sheriff's Office, the Georgia State Patrol, the Georgia Department of Motor Carrier Compliance, and the Department of Natural Resources.

How to Dispose of a Traffic Citation

  • Wait at least fourteen days to inquire of the amount of your bond.
  • We accept cash, money orders, or credit card (with a convenience fee).
  • You can mail a money order to:
    P.O. Box 1520
    Evans, GA 30809
  • Please include the correct name, address, date of citation issued, and citation number, if known, when mailing your payment.
  • No personal or business checks accepted. Checks received will be returned and the traffic citation is handled as a non-payment.
  • You may pay online at EZ Court Pay or call 800-262-0128. To do so you must have your citation number, date of birth, and the Jurisdiction is Columbia County.
  • If you do not pay your citation on or before your court date your driver's license will be subject to being suspended by DDS after the court date.

Out-of-State Violators

Georgia is a member of the Interstate Driver's License Compact. If you are from a state that also participated in the compact, your state will recognize a ticket issued to you in Georgia as if it were issued in your home state. Failing to appear before the Columbia County Probate Court or to pay the traffic fine prior to your appearance date, will result in your home state suspending your driver's license until the fines are paid.
