Step 1

Call the number listed on your speeding ticket. The court date and time will be on the ticket along with the contact information. The clerk can give you the exact cost of your ticket if you do not have to appear in court.

Step 2

Phone your local Department of Motor Vehicles, according to the DMV Answers website. If you supply your ticket number or the violation code, the agency will tell you the amount of money to pay the state.

Step 3

Contact the police department in the city where you received the fine. It should have a list of the individual costs of each fine. If the ticket was given to you out of state or in another county, be sure to mail the fine on time or pay it online, if that is allowed. If you do not pay it before the deadline, there may be late fees and other fines added to the amount.

Step 4

Call the court clerk's office in the county where you received your ticket. This office will be glad to tell you the cost of your ticket and the address.
