If your plea is “Guilty” or “No Contest” or you were found guilty after a trial, you can request 30 days to pay your fine and costs without being penalized with a $25.00 payment plan fee. After 30 days, the court is required to add the $25.00 payment plan fee to each case.
Failure to pay will result in a capias warrant issue for your arrest plus a $50.00 warrant fee added to each warrant. There will also be an additional $30.00 FTA Program fee if the court reports you to the Department of Public Safety for nonpayment. You may also be denied renewal of your Texas Driver’s License.
