Pay a Parking Ticket Online
We know what an inconvenience it is to come into the Sparta Police Department to pay a parking ticket during normal business hours. With this option, you may pay 24/7 online.
You will be required to know the ticket number, license plate number, and make/model of vehicle to pay a parking ticket online. This information may be received by calling the Sparta Police Department during normal business hours.
Please note that partial payments WILL NOT clear the ticket or satisfy a suspended registration. If you think you have multiple tickets, or need the amount owed, please call and we can let you know. Also, paying a ticket here does not automatically clear it from the Department of Transportation; it still takes 7-10 business days for the satisfaction to process.
