It is the responsibility of the accused to contact the court by the appearance date, even if the court does not send out a courtesy notice.

Please note that the accused must contact the court which means that in most cases the individual does not have to physically appear in court rather the person is responsible for contacting the court by the appearance date. A person may contact the court by:

1-    Mail
2-    Phone
3-    Letter
4-    On-line service (if available)
5-    Appear in court at the court clerk window

If a person does not contact the court by the appearance date the individual will be charged with violation of section 40508 (a) vc of the California of the vehicle code for an FTA Failure to Appear.  FTA or failure to appear is a misdemeanor criminal offense.
