What if I fail to appear in court?
If you fail to appear at your scheduled court appearance, a warrant may be issued for your arrest with additional fines. The clerk’s office will notify the Department of Driver Services to suspend your driver’s license or your privileges to drive in this State until you have satisfied the court. If your license or privileges are suspended, a reinstatement fee may be assessed by the State. For more information, contact the court at (912) 368-8206.
