First, you need to know which court is handling your case.
Types of Courts in Clark County
There are two types of courts that handle traffic cases in Southern Nevada. First, there are Municipal Courts. Municipal Courts have jurisdiction over most traffic cases that arise within the city limits. There are five Municipal Courts in Clark County, Las Vegas, Henderson, North Las Vegas, Boulder City and Mequite. The municipal courts also handle other misdemeanor criminal cases that arise in the city limits.
The second type of court that handles traffic ticket cases are the Justice Courts. Justice Courts have jurisdiction over any traffic ticket case within the county.
