If you make a required down payment and agree to make affordable monthly payments, the Court will notify the Arizona Motor Vehicle Department (MVD) that you are in compliance with your civil traffic fines and fees due to the Court. You may then contact MVD to find out what you must do to reinstate your driving privileges.0x0120D520A808001A889114CA888F44ACA6CC7141071126text/html; charset=utf-8 Video

El CAP está proyectado para ayudarle a solucionar multas de tránsito vencidas que se adeudan al Tribunal que pueden estar impidiendo el restablecimiento de su licencia de conductor de Arizona, para hacer un plan de pagos por todo cargo de tránsito y de estacionamiento en lo civil, sin tener que comparecer ante un juez. Si paga el anticipo y está de acuerdo en hacer pagos mensuales accesibles, el Tribunal le notificará al Departamento de Vehículos Motorizados de Arizona (MVD - Por sus siglas en Inglés) que usted está en conformidad con el Tribunal con las multas y cuotas de tránsito en lo civil. Entonces puede comunicarse con el MVD para averiguar qué debe hacer para restablecer sus privilegios de conducir.0x0120D520A808001A889114CA888F44ACA6CC7141071126text/html; charset=utf-8 Video
