Student Traffic Court

How Student Traffic Court Works

Student Traffic Court is held by a jury of your peers and is a way to keep a ticket from appearing on your driving record. High school students will hear your case. You will be required to complete community service hours and follow all the conditions of the student traffic court. If you complete all required conditions, your case will be dismissed.


  • You must attend: Issaquah High School, Skyline High School or Liberty High School.
  • Your ticket must be filed in the Issaquah Municipal Court.
  • Your ticket cannot be a negligent driving charge or involve a traffic accident.

How to Sign Up

  • Write a letter to the court advising that you would like to participate in the student court program.
  • Include your full name, date of birth, citation number and which high school you attend.
  • Attach a copy of your citation to the letter.
  • Mail or bring the letter to the Issaquah Municipal Court.

What Happens Next?

  • You will be contacted by the Student Traffic Court Advisor at your high school.
  • They will notify you of your hearing date, time and location.
  • Complete all requirements.
  • Upon successful completion, your case will be dismissed.

It is the student's responsibility to follow through with all program requirements and make sure all community service hours are accepted by the student traffic court advisor. The court is not able to change the conditions of student traffic court or extend the time allowed to complete the required conditions. Once you have been accepted into the student court program, all questions should be directed to the student court advisor at your high school.
