WHAT IS AN OC PAY #?

An OC Pay # is assigned to every case. It serves as a unique identifier to allow access to the Court's automated phone system and web transaction system. Your OC Pay # is printed on the front of the violation information notice on the right of your citation number. Payments, extensions and general Court information can be obtained through the automated phone system using this number. Watch OC Pay Video
