Recorder’s Court to Offer Failure To Appear Amnesty Program

The Savannah Chatham Recorder’s Court will hold an Amnesty Program from February 1 to April 15, during which individuals with past-due citations that have Failure to Appear contempt fees can have those fees forgiven. Citations not requiring a court appearance must be paid in full. In cases where a court appearance is required, individuals will be rescheduled and a payment plan can be established after going before the Court.

Citations requiring a court appearance include but are not limited to: • No driver’s license • Driving while suspended • Driving on restricted license • Unlawful use of license • No insurance (unable to provide proof) • Expired tag (unable to provide proof) • Speeding (35 miles or over) • Racing • Fleeing to elude • Open container • Hit and run

The amnesty program promotes the restoration of lawful driving privileges, settling outstanding violations with the court and reducing arrests due to Failure to Appear.

Citations cannot be rescheduled or paid via phone or internet. Interested parties must visit the Savannah Chatham Recorder’s Court Cashier’s office located at 133 Montgomery St. during the amnesty period, Monday-Friday, 8:15 a.m. to 4:45 p.m., to pay their fines or reschedule a court appearance.
