Court Operation

The Pine Beach Municipal Court is no different than any other Municipal Court in the State of New Jersey, in that we handle traffic, quasi-criminal, disorderly and petty disorderly cases. Charges of greater magnitude are directed to the Ocean County Prosecutorís Office and the Superior Court.

The majority of quasi-criminal cases will involve an appearance in court. Motor Vehicle Summonses that do not require a court appearance may be paid at the Pine Beach Court Administratorís Office, Wednesdays 4:30 PM - 6:30 PM with the exception of the third Wednesday of the month when hours are 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM or at the NJMCdirect website.


Payment Arrangements

Payments arrangements made at the conclusion of an appearance in court may also be paid at the court office or at the NJDIRECT website. This site offers the user a direct link to the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) which will enable the user to pay MVC fees and surcharges directly, and allows them to also re-establish driving privileges that may have been suspended. Additionally NJMCDIRECT offers the user the capability to run a state-wide check by license plate number to see if they have any outstanding summonses in any Municipal Court in the State of New Jersey.

Please make sure that you take the time to read the front and back of your Motor Vehicle Summons or complaint so that you are aware of what is required of you as a defendant. Should you receive a Motor Vehicle Summons or a Quasi Criminal Complaint, you may contact the Municipal Court at 732-349-6453 with specific questions.


Please contact the Municipal Court at or 732-349-6453 and provide your email address and they will accommodate you.
