Fine Schedule

Court Fine Schedule
The following fine amounts are valid only if your fine is paid by the appearance date on your citation. After the appearance date, you must pay a late fine amount. If your case is in warrant status, it is recommended that you call the Municipal Court to obtain the correct fine amount. All fine amounts listed include state court costs.

Fine amounts are subject to change without notice at this site.

The following list does not include all possible violations. If the violation you have been cited for is not listed below, you may access the actual amount due online. You must have a Texas driver's license and your citation number available to access this information online.

Please note that it takes 5 business days to receive your citation from the issuing officer and process it with the court, so information may not yet be available at the court.

To obtain a fine schedule amount for offense occurring before September 01, 2009 you will need to contact the Court Clerk's Office at 972-292-5555.
