Setting you UP to succeed

Is your license suspended due to multiple traffic tickets in multiple courts in King County? Then the UP Program is the program for you! If you have gotten tickets in:

 Algona        Enumclaw         Maple Valley         Sammamish
 Auburn        Federal Way        Medina        SeaTac
 Bellevue        Hunts Point        Mercer Island        Seattle

 Clyde Hill        Kirkland        Redmond        Woodinville
 Des Moines        Lake Forest Park        Renton         Yarrow Point


these courts are participants in the UP Program, allowing a consolidated payment plan for people with fines in multiple courts in King County. (People with fines in only one jurisdiction should contact that court for information on their relicensing program.)

Here’s how it works:

  • Court customers with suspended licenses – due to failure to respond/pay – contact a court where they have fines; they will receive the necessary documentation needed to complete the online application.
  • Using the documentation provided by the court, the customer will submit an online application.
  • The payment agency works with individuals to determine a realistic payment plan, as low as $25.00 per month, which includes a $7.00 fee.
  • Once the payment agency receives the first installment, participating courts will be notified and they will notify the Washington State Department of Licensing that the hold can be removed from the person’s driver’s license

Get started by going to the front counter at any district or municipal court in King County.
