You MUST have the following to register for the class:

  • Receipt for payment of Diversion Fee.
  • $18 Class Fee (paid by credit or debit card only)

Failure to complete the bicycle diversion class AT LEAST THREE BUSINESS DAYS PRIOR to your court date may result in additional monetary penalties being imposed.
