KING COUNTY Unified Payment (UP) Program


Beginning October 1, 2017, individuals with traffic-related fines in multiple jurisdictions in King County will have an easier and less expensive way to pay court-mandated fines through the new Unified Payment (UP) Program. This program also lifts the hold on a person’s driver’s license before the fines are paid in full.

Participation Requirements

  1. Must have one or more tickets in Municipal or District courts within King County.

  2. Tickets must have a hold or potential hold against the individual’s driver’s license.

  3. Must have an ability to pay (those without the ability to pay should contact the court in which the ticket is filed).

  4. Must take care of any outstanding warrants issued by a court in King County. 


How it works

  1. Court customers with suspended licenses due to failure to respond/pay contact a court where they have fines to receive the necessary documentation needed in order to complete the online application.

  2. Using the documentation provided by the court, the customer will submit an online application.

  3. The payment agency works with individuals to determine a realistic payment plan, as low as $25.00 per month, which includes a $7.00 fee.

  4. Once the payment agency receives the first installment, participating courts will be notified and they will notify the Washington State Department of Licensing that the hold can be removed from the person’s driver’s license.
