This webpage allows Law Enforcement Agencies or E-Citation Vendors who desire authorization/approval to use mobile electronic citation systems the ability to submit electronic data for structure testing. The Department’s authorization to require this process is found in section 316.650(1) (c), Florida Statutes. Specifically, this statute authorizes a traffic enforcement agency to produce uniform traffic citations by electronic means if they are consistent with the state traffic court rules and procedures established by the Department.
Structure testing includes scenarios for testing the transmission of moving, non-moving and criminal traffic citation data. This data must pass through without error to gain approval status. The approved transmission format for eCitations is given in the eCitation Interface Control Document. For the current list of approved violation codes, please click here.
All test files must meet the following criteria:
Once this structure testing is complete, the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles will provide an approval notice to the vendor or agency. If you have any questions please call Christopher Poitier or Deborah Todd at (850) 617-2589 or email E-Citation@flhsmv.gov.
