State Trooper Citations

In Nashville, traffic tickets issued by State Troopers are handled by the criminal court clerk. If you wish to discuss your options regarding driving school, contacting the clerk about your ticket will lead to the quickest resolution.

You may also pay the ticket online at https://ccc.nashville.gov/about-our-services/pay-state-traffic-citations-online/. Paying the ticket before court or before speaking to the clerk regarding traffic school is an admission of guilt. Meaning points will likely be added to your driver’s license, even if you opt to attend driving school after you pay the fine. If you accumulate 12 or more points in a 12-month period in Tennessee, your license will be suspended. To suspend your license, the State must send a notice of suspension to you and you will have the opportunity for a hearing. A suspension can last 6 to 12 months, but you may be eligible for a restricted license. Visit Schedule of Points Values (tn.gov) for more information regarding point values.
