Examiner Hearing Requests

Within 21 days from receiving an Administrative Review decision, you may request a hearing with an Examiner. You must make a deposit of the the full amount of your citation (VC40215(b)). Examiner Hearing deposits may be made at the TAPS Sales Office during business hours. If you are found not liable by the Examiner, the entire deposit will be refunded.

Hearings will be scheduled on the third Friday of every month starting at 9:00 a.m. Hearings must be scheduled within 90 days of your request. 

Please note: Hearings scheduled in March will be on Monday 03/11/24 starting at 9:00 a.m. and not the third Friday 03/15/24.


Failure to request a hearing within 21 days of your Administrative Review decision or failure to follow directions will result in the Administrative Review being deemed final and the right to an appeal will be exhausted.

Hearing scheduling change requests must be made no later than 24 hours in advance of their scheduled date and time.
