Chamblee Municipal Traffic Court

Location + Parking

4445 Buford Highway
Chamblee, GA 30341

As with most courts, from a parking perspective, it pays to get there early if you can! There are a handful of spots available in the main parking lot. But if other folks beat you to it, you may want comfortable footwear because it could be a walk.

There is often a long line outside due to security checks. Bring an umbrella if the weather promises precipitation!

Court Communications

You can reach the Court Clerk by phone at 770-986-5004 and by email at

If you’ve received a traffic citation in DeKalb County, you might have to appear in Chamblee Municipal Court.

You can look up your case to see if you can pay your ticket in advance of court at the court’s website. Before you pay, make sure you are comfortable with the consequences of a guilty plea because paying a ticket is often treated as a formal admission of guilt and will likely be reported on your record.

Expect Court to Move Slowly

Unfortunately, traffic court appearances will almost take longer than they should. Chamblee is a busy and bustling traffic court with few private corners to discuss your case or phone a friend. If you want to have a private conversation, you may need to exit the parking lot and go back through security to come back in.

Once you have been shuffled through security, you will be directed to your courtroom – usually a courtroom for cases with a private attorney and a courtroom for people representing themselves.

Court could last for a few hours, depending on your case, so make sure you have charged your phone and have snacks in the car for reinforcement! If you have an attorney, ask if they can appear on your behalf so you don’t have to get stuck waiting with them!

Public Records

You may want to get a copy of records relevant to your case before court. The City of Chamblee has an online portal for ordering public records, which may be handy when you are researching your case. They will charge you .10 cents for every page of documents produced.

Know Your Driving History

It’s a good idea to know where you stand with your driving history before you arrive at Chamblee Municipal Court to resolve a traffic citation. Knowing how many points you currently have can provide you with a better understanding of the possible penalties you might face for the new ticket.

You can get a copy of your personal Motor Vehicle Report (MVR) from the Georgia Department of Driver Services in one of four ways:

  1. Download the DDS 2 Go Mobile App and view two years of your driving history for free
  2. Use the DDS website and create an online account
  3. Arrive in person at any DDS Customer Service Center
  4. Request a certified copy in the mail by submitting a letter or Motor Vehicle Request Form (DDS-18).

You can use any of these options to request a 3-year, 7-year, or lifetime driver history report for a small fee.
