Distracted Driving Program
DO NOT PAY your citation on-line if you elect to participate in the Distracted Driving Program (DDP).
Upon successful completion of the distracted Driving Program your Guilty plea will be processed without the additional distracted driving fine of $100.00.
The cost of the court's Distracted Driving Program is $160.00 payable to the Vandalia Municipal Court and is non-refundable. There is no cost for the on-line traffic class. Class information will be provided to you upon receipt of your $160.00 and Conditional Guilty Plea and Referral and Entry form.
You must complete the on-line Distracted Driving class AFTER you have formally entered and paid for the Distracted Driving Program. You will be provided this information by the court.
Print the Conditional Guilty Plea Referral and Entry form, sign and enclose a $160.00 money order made payable to Vandalia Municipal Court. Mail to Vandalia Municipal Court, P.O. Box 429, Vandalia, OH 45377.
NOTE: You cannot take the online class until the court has received your signed Conditional Guilty Plea Referral and Entry form and your $160.00 money order.
Remember, you are responsible to successfully complete the on-line program within 30 days and provide proof to the court that you have successfully completed the program. Unsuccessful completion will result in an additional $100.00 fine being assessed. A conviction will be forwarded to the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles where points may be added to your driving record. The $160.00 for the underlying offense will be forfeited.
Non-payment of the $100.00 fine will result in a warrant block or non-resident compact suspension being issued which prohibits you from renewing your operator's license and vehicle registration. Should your account remain unpaid, it will be submitted to Capital Recovery Systems or the Attorney General's Office for collection. Additional fees will be assessed to your account for these actions.
