Making Payment Arrangements With Garland Municipal Court On Warrant Recall Day

This may give you more time to pay, but in exchange for that payment arrangement, you must enter a plea of “no contest” or “guilty.” That is very important to understand in order to protect your permanent driving record and criminal record. Once that conviction is sent to DPS, it will never be removed. It can also cause serious financial penalties to be assessed against you by way of surcharges from The State of Texas. These surcharges can sometimes be as much as 3 times the actual fine amount. For example, if you enter into a payment arrangement for a no insurance case, the surcharge penalty is $750.00 that must be paid in equal installments of $250.00 a year. If it is not paid, then the driving privileges of the individual are suspended indefinitely until they are paid.
