FAQ:

How much does it cost?

You will need $25.00 cash. We do not accept checks, money orders or credit cards.

How long does it take?

The panel usually takes about an hour to an hour and a half.

What if I don't have an ID?

We understand that you may not have a Drivers License at the moment. You will still be admitted.

Can I bring someone with me?

Many people will need a ride. Your ride can wait in the lobby or outside. They may attend but they will have to pay the $25.00 fee (panel size dependent).

What should I wear?

You may dress casual but DO NOT show up in sweat pants, flip flops or pajamas. You will not be admitted if you do.

What if I can't make it or I am late?

Only a judge can excuse you. If you fail to appear or are late and not admitted, the court that sent you will be notified and it may be considered a failure to complete your sentence.

Who are the speakers?

Our speakers vary every month. Some are officials but most are victims of Distracted Driving or DWI offenders or are offenders themselves.
