Pay a Citation
Welcome to the PTS Real-Time Citation Verification and Payment System.
Upon entering our secure website, you will be able to search our live database by citation number or license plate number. The search will return all unpaid citation and cost information associated with your license plate for your review and payment, including immobilizations and impoundments.
Attention, students: Once a payment has been made, it may take up to one business day to have the hold released. For the quickest processing, PTS recommends contacting our office after making a payment to verify that the hold has been removed. Call (859) 257-5757 or (800) 441-0555 to confirm that the hold has been lifted. The PTS office is open 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Be sure you have your:
- Correct mailing address
- Vehicle license plate number or citation number
- Visa, MasterCard, AMEX or Discover Card number and expiration date
The PTS office is closed after 7:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, and all day on weekends and holidays. To have the boot on your vehicle released or to retrieve your vehicle from the impoundment lot when the PTS office is closed, contact the UK Police Department at (859) 257-UKPD (8573). You can pay the boot/impoundment fee online as outlined above, or by using cash or check at the UK Police Department.
