How do I contest a parking ticket?

You may only contest a parking citation within 30 days of receiving the citation. There are 2 options to contest a parking citation.

Option 1 (In Person) - There is a hearing scheduled once a month for parking citation contestment's. A hearing official is present for you to speak to at that time. In-person hearings are scheduled by appointment only. You must bring your citation to the police department and schedule your appointment within 30 days of receiving the citation.

Option 2 (By mail) - You may submit a written statement to the hearing official regarding your citation. Please mail your statement along with your citation to the Visalia Police Department, Attn: Parking Contest, 303 S Johnson, Visalia, CA 93291. You will receive a confirmation from the department indicating your statement was received.

You will receive your results by mail approximately 10 business days after the scheduled hearing for both In-person as well as by mail contests.
