Equipment Violation

If your violation code is a #375, #376, or #381 equipment violation, and you choose to make timely repairs to obtain a dismissal, you have two options. According to NYS VTL 376-A4, you can either submit an authorized repair shop’s proof-of-repair or you can repair the vehicle, privately or by yourself within one half hour after sundown the next business day,. Following the repair you must complete and mail a proof-of-repair form (PDCN-68), available from any Nassau County police officer or precinct, with the signed ticket (Part B), along with the authorized repair shop’s proof-of-repair or the proof of purchase for the part, to Nassau County Traffic and Parking Violations Agency (NCTPVA).

If you do not repair the vehicle in accordance with NYS VTL 376-A4, by default you are choosing to plead guilty. Sign (Part A), attach your payment of $153 and mail all, including your ticket, to:

Nassau County Traffic and Parking Violations Agency
16 Cooper St. W.
Hempstead, NY 11550-4063


To plead not guilty, complete Part B including your current address and telephone number on the reverse side of the traffic ticket. Sign your name and mail the ticket to the Nassau County Traffic and Parking Violations Agency 16 Cooper Street, Hempstead, NY 11550-4063. All documents must be returned on or before the return date on the ticket. You will receive a conference notice for a date and time to appear. (Please note: a conference is a meeting between a traffic prosecutor and you or your authorized representative, to discuss your options).



All documents must be returned on or prior to the return date on the ticket.
