Issuing A Warrant
The court will issue a warrant when:
  • You violated your promise to appear on your citation
  • You failed to comply with the orders of the court
  • You did not complete a payment plan or failed to make payments as directed
  • You failed to appear on a summons, bond, or order to appear
Warrant Status
If you are in warrant status your options are limited, please contact the court. If you are in warrant status and you have a driver’s license, it will be denied renewal pursuant to Chapter 706 of the Texas Transportation Code under the Failure to Appear Program.

The only way to avoid arrest and regain the ability to renew your driver’s license is to pay your fine(s) in full. This may be done Monday through Friday 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. Once payment in full is made, your driver’s license will be cleared by this agency and the warrant cleared. If you have a Texas driver’s license it will take one to three business days to clear. An out of state driver’s license can take several weeks to clear and is done by mail. This will depend on your state's licensing 

Not Guilty
If you wish to plea not guilty to any of the warrant charges, you can be required to post a surety bond to secure another court date. The bond can be double the total of all pending charges. If your license has been denied renewal, it will not be cleared until after the final disposition of the pending charges.
