3. Do I have to go to court or can I just pay the citation? If you were charged with never having a driver license or an insurance violation, you MUST appear in Court. Otherwise, you may sign the back of your citation, indicating that you plead guilty and waive your right to a trial, and mail in the full amount of the citation (including court fees and taxes) to:
Nolensville Municipal Court
PO Box 547
Nolensville, TN 37135
4. Is there any way to keep this citation off my driving record? There is an opportunity to take a defensive driving class in order to keep a moving violation from appearing on your driving record. This is assigned during the court session by the judge. The following requirements must be met in order to qualify to attend the defensive driving class: you must attend court, you cannot have any moving violations on your driving record from anywhere for the last three years, and you cannot have taken a class to have a moving violation kept from your record anywhere within the last three years.
There are costs associated with the class which are in lieu of the fines on the back of the citation. If you do qualify for the defensive driving class and wish to take it DO NOT pay the ticket in advance and DO NOT attend a class in advance. You will be asked to pay $75 court administrative costs to the Town the day you appear in Court (local check, money order or cash payments only - we cannot accept credit/debit cards). Registration for the class is an additional amount (approximately $50) paid directly to the defensive driving school you choose to attend. There are several locations available on various days and times, including Saturdays. Information will be provided to you after court or see below:
5. What kind of payments do you accept? We accept cash, cashier’s checks, local checks or money orders only. We can only accept credit or debit cards for online payments (this option is NOT available at Nolensville Town Hall).
6. Where can I pay for the citation? You can mail your payment (cashier’s check, local check or money order) to: Nolensville Municipal Court, PO Box 547, Nolensville, TN 37135; you can pay in person at Town Hall, 7218 Nolensville Rd. Nolensville, TN 37135, Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.; or you can pay online with a credit or debit card.
7. What if I can’t attend court on the date I am scheduled for? You may contact the Court Clerk (615.776-6684 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org) at least 7 days prior to your scheduled court date to reschedule. If you have a last minute emergency and are unable to attend your scheduled hearing, you MUST call the court clerk before your scheduled court time. If no answer, please leave a detailed message to avoid receiving a Failure to Appear violation.
8. What if I want to plead not guilty and contest the citation at a trial? You must notify the Court Clerk (615.776-6684 or email at email@example.com) at least 10 (ten) days prior to your scheduled Court date so the issuing Officer can be notified to appear at your trial.
9. What if I don’t appear in court or pay the citation? If you fail to appear in court on your assigned date on a traffic citation or fail to pay this citation before your scheduled date and time, you will be charged with Failure to Appear, assessed an additional $50 fine, and your Court date will be rescheduled. A letter stating the previous will be mailed to the address that appears on the citation. If you again fail to appear or pay the citation, the Tennessee Department of Safety will be notified to initiate suspension of your license.
10. What if I go to court, but don’t do what the Judge orders? If you fail to comply with the Judge’s orders, you will be charged with Contempt of Court, assessed an additional $50 fine and offered a new court date. Failure to comply includes not attending a driving class and/or not paying the amount as ordered by the Judge. If you fail to appear on the new court date or pay the citation, the Tennessee Department of Safety will be notified to initiate suspension of your license.
