IMPORTANT: Accounts paid in full by debit card, check, or eCheck will incur a 15 day hold period before notification of your account being paid in full is provided to the Court, which in turn will authorize DMV to release a driver's license hold.
It is the cardholder’s responsibility to know whether they are paying using a credit card or debit card.
Payments by debit cards or eCheck will not be cancelled by DOR to permit re-payment by credit card.
Accounts pursued under Court ordered civil assessment generally include a DMV hold placed on your driver's license. The hold will be removed upon notification by DOR to the Superior Court when the account has been paid in full. However, payment made by debit card, check or eCheck (checking/saving accounts) whether in our office, through the mail, via the Internet or phone will delay the paid in full notification to the Court for at least 15 days.
