Parking Citations

Any car, which is parked in violation of the Napa Valley College parking regulations, may be issued a parking citation.

If you receive a parking citation and wish to appeal it, you must contact the College Police Department within 21 days of receiving the citation or you will loose your right to contest the citation.

 You may pay for your citation at the following locations:

  • In person - at the cashier's window located in the 1500 building
  • By mail 
  • Online
  • By phone - (707) 229-1417

Failure to pay or respond to a parking citation within 60 days will result in a "HOLD" being placed on you car registration by the Department of Motor Vehicles. This means that you will not be able to renew your car registration until all fines are paid.

By California law, the registered owner of a vehicle is liable for all citations issued to that vehicle.

Parking citations are issued in accordance with the Napa Valley College parking regulations and California Vehicle Code Sections
