Parking Ticket Lookup and Copies

You can get information about your parking tickets by looking up the status using your license plate number or parking ticket number.

You can find out:

  • If you have any unpaid tickets
  • How much you owe
  • If your tickets are in judgment
  • Hearing status
  • Payment status

Look up the status of your parking tickets.

Call 311 for status if you do not have the license plate number or ticket number.


The Department of Finance sends notices of any unpaid parking ticket fines, penalties, hearings, and judgments to the mailing address on file with the Department of Motor Vehicles for the registered owner of the vehicle. Make sure to keep your address up-to-date with the DMV to ensure that you receive these notices.

Parking Tickets Not In System

Parking ticket information is generally available in the Department of Finance system within a certain timeframe, depending on the type of ticket.

  • Computer-printed ticket: within 5 business days
  • Handwritten ticket: within 10 to 14 days

Sometimes it takes longer to be uploaded. You can still pay your tickets online, by mail, in person at a Finance Business Center, or using the "NYC Parking Ticket - Pay or Dispute" mobile app if they aren't showing up in the system. To fight tickets that aren't in the system yet, you can request a hearing by mail or using the mobile app, or have a walk-in hearing at a Finance Business Center.

One year after a parking ticket has been paid, the ticket information is archived and will no longer be available online. You can get this information and ticket history by mail or at a Finance Business Center.

Copies and Ticket History

If you lost or never received a parking ticket on your vehicle, you can get a copy. You can also request a printout of your ticket history for your records.
