FCC Speeding Tickets in Missouri
If you receive a speeding ticket in Missouri from a Missouri Highway patrol officer, the ticket will state that it is an FCC ticket. FCC means “Fine Collection” Center, and it is located in Jefferson City. On an FCC ticket, instead of a court date to resolve the speeding ticket, the ticket will state “due in 30 days”.
Even though there is no court date listed, you can still resolve the ticket with a St. Charles traffic lawyer in the circuit court of the county where the ticket was received. The process works much the same as any speeding ticket received in a Missouri municipal court. You can hire our firm to represent you and seek a no-points amendment to avoid paying higher insurance premiums and getting points on your license.
As with regular speeding tickets, pleading guilty will result in having those points on your license. If you receive too many points, your license can be suspended. And when you plead guilty, your insurance premiums are likely to go up because the insurance company will see the guilty plea and decide you are more expensive to insure.
Keep in mind that not all county prosecutors will amend FCC tickets to non-moving violations (no point tickets). In St. Charles County and surrounding counties, prosecutors will amend these tickets. However, in some rural counties, they will not. You can call our office and we can advise you on your particular ticket at no charge.
If you hire Traffic Ticket Center, we can work with the prosecutor to amend your FCC speeding ticket so you can avoid paying more for insurance and risk losing your ability to drive.
