Paying a Parking Ticket

The California Vehicle Code (CVC) sets forth the procedures governing the issuance and resolution of parking tickets throughout the State. In order to efficiently and effectively carry out those procedures, the City of Victorville Parking Administration contracts with the Citation Processing Center (a.k.a. Data Ticket, Inc.) to provide citation processing, payment, hearing, and collection services.

If you’d like more information about your parking ticket, call the Citation Processing Center at (800) 989-2058. Please have either the citation number (located in the top right hand corner of the ticket), or the vehicle license plate number available.
