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 to appear
If you are in warrant status your options are limited, please contact the warrant division at 210-619-1662 or 210-619-1663 or 210-619-1664.
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 from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (excluding holidays). The City of Schertz Municipal Court accepts cash, credit/debit cards, money orders and cashiers checks. The City of Schertz Municipal Court does NOT accept personal checks or company checks.
Full Payment Information
Payment in full may also be made online here. 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 licensing state’s procedures.
You can pay your fine in full and avoid another court appearance. If you wish to plea “not guilty” to any of the charges, you can be required to post a cash or 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. There is no statute of limitations on an arrest warrant or the denial of your driver’s license.
The City of Schertz Municipal Court contracts with a law firm for the collection of outstanding fines, therefore the total amount owed is subject to differ between DPS and the Municipal Court.
