Cobb County Government

What determines if my citation is payable or whether I must appear in court?

Whether a citation is payable or requires a court appearance is determined by the judges of the Cobb County State Court. In creating what is known as the Traffic Violations Bureau (TVB), the judges drafted and signed an order setting out what offenses were to be payable without a court appearance.

For further information you should contact the State Court Clerk's Office, Traffic Violations Bureau, at 770-528-2660. Office hours are 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. however you can access our IVR system 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
