Failure to either pre-pay or appear on your assigned court date to dispose of your offense could result in a warrant being issued for your arrest. Increased fines may be assessed, and you may be required to post bond. Your failure to appear or pay for your offense may be reported to your state licensing authority and your driving privilege could be suspended.
To get your license back after a Failure to Appear in Court for Traffic Violation (FACT) suspension, you will be required to show proof of compliance and pay a $20 fee, per offense, to your nearest driver's license office.
The court may place a hold on your driver record so you cannot apply for a new or duplicate driver license. In order for the hold to be removed, you must submit a release order from the court indicating you have paid the traffic fine. A $20 reinstatement fee is not required.
If you receive a ticket while traveling out of state, the Missouri Department of Revenue can suspend your license for failure to pay tickets issued anywhere in the United States.
If you have failed to pay your offense or appear in court, please contact the court office at (816)331-2798.
