OC Pay

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. You may also find your OC Pay # on any other Court generated form and/or notice.

Payments, extensions and general Court information can be obtained through the automated phone system using this number.

Traffic citations, including the assigned OC Pay#, may not be available through online case access for up to 21 days from the date the citation was issued. A violation information notice may be mailed to you at the address listed on your citation which contains general information and options available for resolving the citation. If you do not receive a violation information notice in advance of your citation appearance date, contact the court as failure to receive a courtesy notice is not a legal excuse for failing to take care of the citation. When submitting payments and/or documents by mail, allow 10 days for delivery and processing.
