City Court

The Draper City Justice Court handles all Class "B" or Class "C" misdemeanors, infractions, and small claims (jurisdictional limit of $15,000.00) matters that arise within Draper City limits.

Bail Schedule for Bailable Offenses Only 

If you have been charged with speeding, moving, driver's license, seatbelt, parking or open container violations, disorderly conduct, or animal control, you may take care of your citation by paying the bail amount associated with the offense

If the charge is not listed or you'd like to explain your case informally, call the court to schedule an arraignment or hearing.


Most moving and non-moving violations do not require a court appearance. The most common traffic violations that do require a court appearance are speeding in a school zone, no proof of insurance, and driving license violations. All animal control and other city ordinance violations, as well as the majority of criminal charges, do require a court appearance. If you were involved in a criminal action for which you were booked or if a police report was written, you may be summoned to court to answer to the charges. You may contact the court, and the judicial assistants will inform you if your appearance is required.

Yes. You must appear before the Judge and make a request to do community service instead of paying a fine. The Court credits $125.00 for each 8-hour workday with Draper City's Public Works Department. Community service is available on Mondays and Wednesdays only. You must call to schedule your community service at least 24 hours prior to the day you want to work. Community service workers must report by 8:00 a.m. and must work 8 hours. Workers may not work partial days. For questions on community service, call 801-576-6540.


No. The Court reports moving violations to Utah Driver License Division only. However, many insurance companies do random checks and, for a fee, they can obtain a copy of your driving history from Driver License Division.

If you wish to keep a conviction from causing points to be added to your Driver License, you must schedule an appointment for an arraignment and discuss those options with the City Prosecutor.

Payments are accepted online, by mail or in person. To pay online, click the link below. You will need your citation or case number in order to process your payment. Other payment methods are also accepted by mail, by phone, or in person. When paying by mail, please include a copy of your citation with your payment. Your check or money order should be made payable to Draper Court and mailed to: 1020 E. Pioneer Rd. Draper, UT 84020. If you wish to pay by credit or debit card, please call (801) 576-6321 and the finance staff will assist you. The city accepts VISA, MASTER CARD, AMERICAN EXPRESS or DISCOVER. Draper City does not offer traffic school. If you are interested in keeping points off your driving history or preventing the charges from affecting your insurance, you will need to contact the Draper Court directly at (801) 576-6540. Not all violations will qualify. This is only available for minor traffic violations. 

Online Payment

Draper Court follows the recommended bail schedule set by the State of Utah. Please contact the court for bail amount on your specific charge.

Action must be taken on a citation within 30 days from the date of violation. Failing to do so will result in a late fee being added. In addition, a warrant for your arrest may be issued. Taking action includes paying the required bail or scheduling an appointment to appear in court to enter a plea or make payment arrangements.

The Draper City Court is located in the lower level of Draper City Hall, 1020 E. Pioneer Rd. (12400 South). The doors to the Court are located at the southeast corner of the building.

All moving violation and driver license violation convictions are sent to the Driver License Division.
