The Los Angeles Superior Court has launched a new service that allows parties needing language assistance in traffic cases to request an interpreter free of charge in advance of their court hearing. The Interpreter Request Portal can be found under the traffic section of the Court’s website at www.lacourt.org.
Any party with a traffic matter who needs assistance in a language other than Spanish may request an interpreter by submitting an on-line request at any time prior to the court hearing. The fillable request form, available in English as well as Armenian, Chinese, Korean, and Vietnamese can be accessed via the online Interpreter Request Portal.
Spanish language interpreters are available in all courtrooms hearing traffic matters, therefore, it is not necessary to submit a request for a Spanish language interpreter prior to the hearing.
Although the Court will make every effort to locate an interpreter for the date and time of the hearing, it cannot guarantee that one will be immediately available.
The Los Angeles Superior Court is committed to providing language access for court users with limited English proficiency. For additional information, visit the Court’s website at www.lacourt.org and click on the Language Access Services icon.
