Unified Payment (UP) Program

Setting you UP to succeed!

Is your license suspended due to multiple traffic tickets in multiple courts in King County? Then the UP Program is for you!

If you have tickets in:

Algona Enumclaw Maple Valley Sammamish
Auburn Federal Way Medina SeaTac
Bellevue Hunts Point Mercer Island Seattle
Black Diamond Issaquah Newcastle Shoreline
Bothell Kenmore Normandy Park Skykomish
Burien Kent North Bend Snoqualmie
Carnation King County Pacific Tukwila
Clyde Hill Kirkland Redmond Woodinville
Des Moines Lake Forest Park Renton Yarrow Point

These courts are participants in the UP Program, allowing a consolidated payment plan for people with fines in multiple courts in King County. (People with fines in only one jurisdiction should contact that court for information on their relicensing program.)

Here's how it works:

  • Court customers with suspended licenses - due to failure to respond/pay - contact a court where they have fines; they will receive the necessary documentation needed to complete the online application.
  • Using the documentation provided by the court, the customer will submit an online application.
  • Once the payment agency receives the first installment, participating courts will be notified and they will notify the Washington State Department of Licensing that the hold can be removed from the person's driver's license.
  • For more information, please contact any King County Municipal or District Court.
