Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) for Payment of Driver Responsibility Fees

EFT is an electronic payment method that you may use to pay your Driver Responsibility Fee. Instead of writing a check for the amount due, you instruct your financial institution to transfer the funds from your account to ours by completing the EFT form provided on this Web site. We then apply the transferred amount to your liability.

EFT is a safe and efficient process for making payment. All transactions are governed by strict, nationally established rules, regulations and security procedures and occur between financial institutions only at your request.

Electronic funds can only be drawn from the responsible party's account, or an account that the responsible party has full signing rights to. Third party transfers are not accepted. If you would like to make payment for another person, please make payment by mail with a check or money order following the "Making Your Payment" instructions given above.
