Warrant Information

Warrants can be issued for failure to appear in court or failure to pay your schedule payment arrangements. You may contact the court at 979-415-2757 or courtclerk@lakejacksontx.gov for more information on how to clear a warrant.

Failure to Pay

If you do not pay your scheduled payments on or before the due dates, your payment contracts will be deleted, additional fees will be added and a capias pro fine (warrant for failure to pay) will be issued for your arrest.  If you fail to pay as ordered, you will be denied renewal of your driver's license and assessed an additional fee.

Failure to Appear

If you do not appear in court or make a payment on or before 10 days from receiving your citation or at your appointed time, an additional charge will be filed against you and a warrant will be issued for your arrest. If you fail to appear in court as provided by law for the prosecution of the offense, you will be denied renewal of your driver’s license and assessed an additional fee.

Denial of Driver’s License

As of September 1, 1995, Transportation Code Sec. 706.004 became effective. This law states that any individual with outstanding warrants for failure to appear based on complaints, citations, or court orders to pay a fine involving a violation of traffic law may be denied renewal of a driver’s license. (As of September 1, 1999, this includes all fine-only offenses.)
