What if I failed to come to Court?

First, call the Court Clerk's office at (615) 851-2214 and you will be advised as to what options are still available for the resolution of your ticket, depending on how many days it is past due. Tickets over 10 days past due will be sent to the Tennessee Department of Safety and your driver's license will be suspended. Once this occurs, you will have to pay a reinstatement fee, plus the original ticket fine, plus a default fee of $50 for each offense on the ticket.
