Provincial Violation Tickets

VT Brochure

A violation ticket is an ordinary traffic ticket, typically issued for offences such as failing to stop and driving without insurance. Most violation tickets are issued by enforcement officers for offences against the Motor Vehicle Act and Motor Vehicle Regulation offences.

Violation tickets can also be issued under any provincial statute included under the Offence Act, such as the Commercial Transport Act, Fisheries Act, Forest Act, Liquor Control and Licensing Act.

You have 30 days, from the date of service shown on the front of the violation ticket, to either pay the fine indicated or dispute the charge.

If you move after you file a dispute, you must advise the Violation Ticket Centre or court registry in writing by completing, signing and mailing a violation ticket change of address form (PTR 805), available at any court registry or download here. The Violation Ticket Centre or court registry will not accept a change of address over the telephone. If you do not advise the Violation Ticket Centre or court registry of your new mailing address, you may not receive the notice of hearing and may be deemed to have pled guilty to the charge.
