Advantages of Trial by Declaration(TBD)

  • You do not have to go to court.
  • Officers do not receive extra pay to do the extra paperwork required for Trial by Declaration, and when they do not submit the declaration on time, the court automatically dismisses your case.
  • It is easier to fully present your defense compared to a court trial.
  • You have 2 chances to win(second chance to win is the Trial De Novo, or the New Trial which is a regular traffic court trial).
  • You may still be eligible for traffic school even if you lose the TBD and the New Trial.
