All businesses in Utah are required by law to register with the Utah Department of Commerce either as a "DBA" (Doing Business As), corporation, limited liability company, or limited partnership. In addition, certain types of businesses need special licenses and permits in order to operate, i.e., insurance agents, contractors, doctors, and dry cleaners, etc. Businesses are also required to obtain a business license from the city or county in which they are located.

Registration ensures that the business name cannot be legally used by another business. The more you use the registered name and become known to the public by name, the more legal protection your name earns against "predatory encroachment" by other businesses. Registration is required so that a comprehensive state registry of all business and corporate information is available for public reference. This information is vital to an orderly legal system and marketplace.
Without it, the public or other businesses may have no way of knowing the persons with whom they are doing business. In addition, registration is required by law to provide public notice as to who owns or stands behind a business entity. You cannot file a lawsuit in court as a business if your business is not registered. Registration enables careful business people to verify information about companies with whom they do business.

The Hurricane Justice Court does not offer a traffic school. If you are seeking to keep charges off of your record, you will need to set a court date. Further instruction will be given to you by the Judge when you appear. If you are seeking to reduce existing points from your driver's license, you may want to contact the Utah Safety Council regarding the National Safety Council's Defensive Driving course.

Contact the court to discuss whether your case qualifies for a plea by mail.
If you received a citation, it states you are required to "appear" between 5 to 14 days. The court clerk will inform you of the options available in your case. The appearance is satisfied when you pay the fine in full or appear at your scheduled court date.
We ask that you not contact the court until the fifth day following your citation. This allows time for the officer to submit the citation to the court and time for the court clerk to enter your citation into the system. A court clerk cannot quote a fine amount, nor can he/she schedule your court date until after the citation has been entered.
It is the policy of this court to allow 21 calendar days from the date of the citation. After 21 days, the court will begin the delinquent process which may result in one or more of the following consequences:

The court will not refer you to speak with the prosecuting attorney until you have entered a plea on your case and waived your right to counsel. If you are represented by a defense attorney neither the prosecutor, nor the court, may discuss your case with you without your attorney being present.
The Judge will not discuss your case with you unless the prosecutor is present. Nor will he speak with the prosecutor regarding your case unless you are present.
