FTA Appearance (Failure to Appear)
Miss Your Court Date?
What happens if I don’t show up to my court date?
Failing to pay the ticket or go to court by the due date results in a “Failure to Appear” charge pursuant to California Vehicle Code 40905. This is an additional misdemeanor offense on top of the underlying ticket violation. The court will general add a $300 civil assessment to the base fine of the ticket when there is a failure to appear. The court may continue adding additional civil assessment and will eventually order a driver’s license hold at the DMV and suspend the person’s driver’s license.
We can clear the Failure to Appear and all license holds immediately.
You don’t have time to wait. Waiting could result in additional fines and penalties and the loss of your driver’s license. We can appear in court (usually next business day) and clear the failure to appear.
We can get the civil assessment dropped or reduced.
We argue at failure to appear/civil assessment hearings almost daily. If you have a good excuse for missing your court date (or sometimes even without an excuse) we can argue that the civil assessment be deleted or reduced. Don’t hesitate, call the best traffic ticket law firm in California.

Used ticket king a year ago for a speeding ticket and they got it dismissed!! Love ticket king! Saved me $300!
These guys are absolutely the best. I got two tickets within a 4 day period. They got one reduced to an off-road violation and the other dismissed. I have told all my friends about SD Ticket King. Thank you so much!
These guys are awesome. Got me out of a hefty ticket a few years back. Money well spent.
Glenn Prentice--These are the best---going a steep down hill grade on I-8 I was busted by the CHP going 84 in a 70mph zone . They were very honest with me--giving me a 50% chance of dismissal---They did cade was dismissed--Thank you very much ticket King!
Not sure how you guys did it. I was doing 86 in a 65 going north on the 15. Motorcycle Cop busted me on radar. Pretty clear if you ask me. $450 ticket. This process couldnt have been simpler. Didn’t have to do anything other than scan the ticket and give a brief description of what happened and email it. Got this today in my email 🙂 ---------------------- Dear Kenan, I am pleased to inform you that we successfully dismissed your ticket. I've attached a copy of the court docket for your records. You don't need to do anything further. Thank you for using our services. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns. Sincerely, Pablo Fabian -- Hullinger, Speredelozzi & Fabian, APC ----------------------
Had two redlights turn tickets in vista about a week apart from eachother, they ended up getting both dismissed 2 thumbs up ++++ i would have ended up paying 1,000
Keep shopping, this "service" will not help u save one single dollar. U will lose time, energy, & $ with these guys. I provided dash cam footage on a special Zip drive and he didn't even use it. I could've asked the officer that wrote my ticket to dismiss it and asked my judge for leniency/a reduction, without paying $149. I still owe the full fine $401. I should've just set the 149 dollars that Scott charged me on fire. Even after years of law school, my representation put in as little effort as humanly possible. Waste of so much time, energy, & money.
One of the best decisions I have made. The process was simple and they handles everything. You are fool if you don't utilize the King
the best, would not use or even recommend anyone else....
I would definitely recommend Scott and I hope I won't get another ticket but if I ever do, I will hire him immediately he's not only polite, dedicated but very professional. I am really happy with the results of my traffic violation ticket. Thank you Scott
Very responsible attorney, and Thanks to work on my latest 2 tickets, and both are dismissed. Recommend!
Great price, perfect result. Thanks so much.
These Guys are Awesome. ..got my Tix dismissed today.... purely professional every step of the way.....thank You
These guys are great. They got my ticket dismissed with almost no involvement from me. I would definitely recommend them to all my friends and family
$532.00 red light camera ticket DISMISSED, incredible.....
Luv these guys got my speeding case dismissed my GO TO people!!!
Saved me time and money. Hopefully I don't need to use this service again but if I do I will be a happy returning customer.
I received 2 tickets in one month. One for illegal u-turn and the second for speeding on the freeway. ( bad month) I was going to fight them myself but hired SD ticket king instead. They got both dismissed! I paid $198 instead of $1100+
Got 3 speeding tickets And a seatbelt ticket dropped to just one traffic school these guys are great!
