The City of Phoenix, Oregon closed its municipal court several years ago. The City has a new system to help people with old tickets:

- For traffic violations from October 2010 or earlier, the City has already waived your debt and lifted your license suspension.

- For traffic violations after October 2010, you have three options – contact the City of Phoenix at (541) 535-1955 or for more information, including information about how to make a payment:

-          From May 1 to August 1, 2021, the City will accept payment of 50% of Phoenix Municipal Court traffic debts from as payment in full.

-          From May 1 to August 1, 2021, you can get your debt reduced by up to $360 by making reusable cloth face masks.

-          If you cannot afford to pay 50%, you can ask about other options including monthly payment plans.

To get your license back, you will need to make sure that you have cleared all active suspensions on your license. Contact the DMV at (503) 945-5000 to ask about additional suspensions from other courts. Use our toolkit or call your local legal aid office for help taking care of tickets in other jurisdictions. Once you have taken care all active suspensions, you may need to pay a reinstatement fee and/or take a driver test to get your license.
