I want to contest a parking ticket I received in Montclair.
The parking citation contains detailed instructions for contesting the citation.  The process is called an administrative review.  Forms may be obtained at the Montclair Police Department or by calling Enforcement Technology at 1-800-654-7275.  The form is also available for printing on the Police Department - Citation section of the City's website.

I want to contest a citation I received for a traffic violation.
You will be provided with the opportunity to do so when you appear in court on the date and time indicated on your Notice to Appear Citation.  Contact the San Bernardino County Superior Court - Traffic Division at (909) 350-9764 for additional information on this process.  Helpful information may also be obtained on the Court website at
www.co.san-bernardino.ca.us/courts.

How can I get a parking permit?
Contact City Hall at (909) 626-8571 for information about the types of permits available and the requirements for their issuance.

My vehicle has vanished.
There are a few possible explanations for why a vehicle may have been removed from its location:  The vehicle may have been towed from private property for parking where parking is prohibited or it may have been towed by the police department if it was parked on the city streets and was in violation of law, such as registration expired over six months, five or more unpaid parking citations, or if it was deemed a hazard.  The vehicle may have been repossessed if the payments are in default. Another possibility is that the vehicle may have been stolen.

If you find that your vehicle has vanished, call the Montclair Police Department at (909) 621-4771.  You will need to provide the vehicle license plate number and last known location so that police personnel may assist you in determining if the vehicle was stored, repossessed, or stolen and provide you with appropriate instructions based on that determination.

My car was vandalized.
Call the Montclair Police Department at (909) 621-4771 to make a crime report.  Do not remove or repair the damage prior to reporting the crime.

I have a question about a parking ticket.

I want to contest a parking ticket.
Instructions for contesting a parking violation are provided on the face of the citation.  Follow these instructions and applicable deadlines.  To obtain an Administrative Review form, you may pick one up at the police department business office, call Enforcement Technology to obtain the form by mail at (800) 654-7275, or print one out from the Police Department - Citations section of the City website.

Can I pay my parking ticket online?

How do I obtain a parking permit?
Residential parking zones on City streets are established in certain areas of the City where there is a high demand for parking but a limited number of parking spaces.  The intent of residential parking zones is to give residents in that area, or residents on one side of a street, parking in front of their homes.  If you live in an area with residential parking restrictions, you may obtain a parking permit or permits by going to the information counter at City Hall.  You must show your driver's license proving that you live at a location within the parking zone and copies of vehicle registrations showing that the vehicles are registered at that address.  Temporary visitor parking can be arranged by contacting the Police Department.

Where can I get a handicapped parking permit?
Handicap placards and handicap license plates are issued by the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).  You may be eligible for disabled person license plates and/or a parking placard if you are permanently disabled.  Temporary parking placards valid for up to six months are available to individuals with temporary disabilities.  A doctor's certification is required for persons whose mobility is impaired due to:

  • Cardiovascular (heart or circulatory) disease.
  • Pulmonary (lung) disease.
  • A diagnosed disease or disorder which significantly limits the use of lower extremities.
  • Specific visual problems including low-vision or partial-sight.
  • Loss, or the loss of the use of, one or both lower extremities or of both hands.  A doctor's certification is not required if there is a loss of a lower extremity or both hands, and the person appears in person at the DMV office.

Below is a listing of the local Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) offices.
