West Covina Courthouse Traffic Clerk the 3  Hour Line

The traffic clerk at the West Covina courthouse is notoriously busy.  Lines can be over an hour most days of the week.   The traffic clerk’s office in West Covina is seperate from the collection agency of GC Services for those unfortunate enough to have a failure to appear or FTA which may be holding or suspending your California Drivers License or even an out of state license.    For many people, the visit to the courthouse starts with waiting over an hour in line, only to be told when your reach the clerk that you actually need to go a separate office to deal with GC Services.    If you have an old traffic ticket in the West Covina courthouse and you are going to try to fix it yourself, yo should start at the GC Services office before you even bother waiting in the traffic line.   The clerk for the criminal and limited civil divisions is located just to the left of the traffic clerk and most days the criminal and civil clerk’s office will have a much shorter line than the traffic court.   If you have a traffic or criminal case in the West Covina Courthouse, you may want to consider retaining the services of a local attorney.
