How do I apply for Deferred Disposition?

You may request to be placed on a Deferred Disposition if you would like to keep a violation from going on your driving record. If all requirements are met, the Court will consider the request and make the decision if it will be granted.  

The Court will NOT grant Deferred Disposition if you:

  • Have had Deferred Disposition in the Pilot Point Municipal Court in the past 12 months.
  • Have a Commercial Drivers License.
  • Have committed on of the following offenses:
    • Failure to Give Information at an Accident Scene
    • Leaving the Scene of an Accident
    • Fleeing or Attempting to Elude a Police Officer
    • Reckless Driving
    • Passing a School Bus
    • A serious traffic violation, which applies to commercial motor vehicle operators.
    • An offense in a construction zone when workers are present.
    • Speeding in excess of 25 mph over the posted limit.

Requirements for Deferred Disposition include:

  • The Defendant will be placed on probation for a set period of time (to be determined by the Judge).
  • Payment of the fee in full (amount to be set by the Judge)
  • Other requirements as set out by the state or Judge depending on the defendant’s age and offense.
  • Complete and return of the required paperwork by the due date.

The case will be dismissed as long as all requirements are met within the time frame set forth by the Judge. Deferred Disposition requirements are set by the Judge based on the Defendant’s age and offense.

To apply, either come in person to the court window during business hours and complete the form provided to you by the Clerk or mail the Deferred Application with a copy of your Drivers License and valid Insurance Card.
