No Proof of Insurance
If you did not have insurance on the day you were cited, you must come to court. If you did have insurance, you may bring your original insurance card (not a copy) to the Court Clerk’s Office prior to your court date and pay a $50 fine. The coverage must be for the vehicle you were driving or you must bring the policy, which states you are covered for any car that you drive.

Failure to Appear
If you fail to appear in court on the court date (on the front of your citation) a bench warrant will be issued if your case requires a court appearance. You will be entered on the State of Georgia’s Crime Information Center (GCIC) computer system as wanted by the Lilburn Police Department, and your driver’s license will be subject to suspension by the Department of Public Safety. A failure to appear warrant incurs an additional $150 fee. If an officer stops you again, they will arrest you and take you to jail.

If, for some reason, you are unable to appear at your scheduled court date, the Municipal Court allows one continuance. This must be requested and signed for in person at the Municipal Court located in the Calvin Fitchett Municipal Complex at 76 Main St., Lilburn, GA 30047. No continuances will be granted by phone and must be requested no later than 48 hours prior to your scheduled court date.
