To provide more accessibility and convenience for those with municipal citations, Tulsa Municipal Court will start Thursday Night Court starting September 7, 2023.

During Thursday Night Court, Tulsa Municipal Court hours will extend its hours until 7 p.m. to accommodate individuals with obligations during regular court hours who may find it challenging to appear for their citations.

“Programs like Night Court are a testament to our commitment to providing more convenient and accessible options for interacting with the City,” Mayor G.T. Bynum said. “I want to thank our Court Administrator Cheri Harvell and her entire team for putting this program together.”

Thursday Night Court offers services to assist citizens in resolving their citations efficiently and effectively. Among the services available is a cashier’s window, allowing people to make citation payments after 5 p.m. on Thursdays. Additionally, people needing court records for compliance letters to reinstate their licenses can access the necessary documentation during the extended hours. Citizens can also visit cost administration to get on, or extend, their payment plan.

“We are excited to introduce Night Court to our community,” said Cheri Harvell, Tulsa Municipal Court Administrator. “We understand that citizens may face time constraints during regular court hours, and this initiative aims to address their needs while providing a more accessible justice system for all. Our commitment is to ensure a seamless and efficient process, helping citizens easily resolve their citations.”

Thursday Night Court will feature three separate dockets at 4 p.m., 5 p.m., and 6 p.m. A Spanish interpreter will be available for citizens at no cost.

Starting August 1, citizens can contact Tulsa Municipal Court to confirm whether their citation qualifies for Night Court and schedule a date if it does.

Citizens with correctible citations (expired tag, insurance, and driver’s license) can email their documents to and bring them with them on their scheduled court date. Prior approval is required to confirm the scheduled court appearance.

To enhance the safety and security of attendees, Tulsa Municipal Court has improved the facility’s outdoor lighting. This ensures easy and safe access to the building during extended hours of operation. Additionally, street parking will be available for free after 5 p.m. on weekdays.
