Pay Your Traffic Tickets Online

This service is available only for tickets issued in Habersham County by the Georgia State Patrol or the Habersham County Sheriff's Office. For information about tickets issued by one of the municipal police departments, or by Georgia State Patrol within one of the municipal jurisdictions, contact the city issuing the ticket.

If no accident or DUI (driving under the influence) was involved, tickets may paid in the Clerk of Court's office up to the date of the court appearance shown on the ticket. Personal checks are not accepted. Payment may be made as follows:

  • Pay online
  • In person: money order or cash
  • By mail: money order or cashier's check

Types of fines that can be paid in this manner are Speeding, No Proof of Insurance, Failure to Obey Traffic Control Device, and other moving violations. If the ticket was issued for No Proof of Insurance, a letter from the insurance company stating that the vehicle was covered by insurance on the day the ticket was issued must be provided to the court.

If the ticket is not paid before the date of the court appearance shown on the ticket, you must appear in court to avoid a bench warrant being issued.

If an accident or DUI was involved, no cash bonds (payment of tickets) are allowed; instead, the individual must appear in court before the judge. If the ticket was issued for DUI, the individual will be notified by the Clerk of Court's office of the date to appear; if for an accident, you must appear on the date shown on the ticket.

HCACC staff also manage the animal shelter and animal control. Some of the costs of this service are offset by fees and donations, including adoption fees, which can be paid here.

Once you have submitted your payment, you will receive an email letting you know if your payment has been accepted or rejected.
