Now you are considering your options, and you are likely asking yourself “Should I Get a Lawyer for a Speeding Ticket?” After all, the lawyer may cost you more than the fine! But, in this line of consideration, you would be thinking too small. You need to think not only of the initial fine, but also about the issues of points, mandatory license suspensions, and larger fines and surcharges.

Before you ask Do I Have to Appear in Court for a Speeding Ticket, the answer is yes. If you do not appear in court for a ticket, you could have a warrant issued by the court or a longer automatic suspension issued.

These hearings are for the purpose of determining the appropriate consequence. In both court and in PennDOT hearings it would be in your best interest to have an attorney in your corner.
