If you don't know, then just select "All." Scroll down to the bottom and click the blue "Submit" button.
If your ticket is in our system, you should see a result that looks similar to the picture above. If your ticket does not appear in the results, please check first to see if you typed your name as it appears on your driver's license correctly. If you did, then check to see if the ticket was issued in Hillsborough County -- you will see that at the top on the left side of the ticket.
