Juvenile Civil Traffic Offenders
A juvenile is considered to be any individual who is under the age of 18 years. All juvenile civil traffic violations are treated in the same manner with the same penalties as an adult civil traffic violation. A parent or legal guardian must be present at all court appearances.
If a juvenile fails to appear, or fails to comply with any court order, the Court will direct the Arizona Motor Vehicle Department to suspend the juvenile’s driver’s license or driving privilege until he/she has satisfied the court or until his/her 18TH birthday, whichever comes first.
Juvenile Criminal Offenses are filed by the Police Department in the Juvenile Division of the Superior Court.
