What is the Deferred Finding Program?

This program allows you to keep an infraction off your driving record. A Deferred Finding is conditioned on an admission of responsibility, a 6-month probationary period with no traffic infractions, and payment of a $175 administrative fee within 30 days of entry. A person may receive only one moving and one nonmoving deferral in a seven-year period.

If the terms of the deferral are violated, the original charge will be found committed and a penalty will be imposed.

A Deferred Finding is not available to:

  • drivers with a commercial driver’s license;
  • drivers operating a commercial vehicle;
  • drivers charged with Negligent Driving with Vulnerable User Victim; or 
  • drivers who have received a Deferred Finding within a seven-year period.
