Burbank traffic court is heard in Department 1 and can get extremely crowded. The line for the traffic clerks window is often more than a half hour wait. The reason people are willing to get up at 5AM and wait in line to get into traffic court like it’s Best Buy on Black Friday is that they are trying to have holds released from their drivers license without paying GC Services. Others are simply confused about their options on what to do with a traffic ticket, or possibly looking for an extension due to an inability to pay the ticket. Many others received what they feel to be an unfair ticket and wish to see a judge to fight the ticket. If you find yourself in a suspended license situation and you would like to get it cleared as cheaply and efficiently as possible while minimizing the damage to your traffic record and potentially your criminal record, you should contact an experienced LA traffic attorney.
The court is staffed by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office, several local prosecuting agencies and the Los Angeles County Public Defender’s Office. With a relatively small caseload in comparison to other LA courthouses, newer construction, and easy freeway access, the Burbank courthouse is one of the nicer courthouses in Los Angeles County.
