The following offenses may be dismissed with no charge to the defendant:
Defendants who receive a citation for failure to provide proof of financial responsibility may have this offense dismissed at no charge by providing proof to the court that either the defendant or the vehicle listed on the citation was covered on the date and time the citation was issued.
Proof must be submitted to the court by the appearance date on the citation. The court is required by law to verify coverage with the insurance carrier. Providing false insurance documents can result in additional charges.
Defendants who did not have valid financial responsibility at the time they received the citation and want to request deferred disposition (probation) must provide proof of current valid financial responsibility at the time the deferred disposition request is made. Payment arrangements may be requested when appearing before the Municipal Judge in open court.
A second or subsequent conviction of an offense under the Texas Motor Vehicles Safety Responsibility Act will result in the suspension of your driver's license and motor vehicle registration unless you file and maintain proof of financial responsibility with the Texas Department of Public Safety for two (2) years from date of conviction. The department may waive the requirement to file proof of financial responsibility if you file satisfactory evidence with the department showing that at the time this citation was issued the vehicle was covered by a liability insurance policy or that you were otherwise exempt from the requirements to provide evidence of financial responsibility.
If you have received a citation for failure to maintain financial responsibility, you may appear at the Colleyville/Keller Municipal Court office with proof that you were insured on the date of the offense, (before your due date) and your citation will be presented to the municipal judge for dismissal.
The following offenses may be dismissed with a dismissal fee if the defendant provides the required documentation to the court. Please call the court within three (3) business days after receiving the citation for information regarding eligibility requirements. Business days are considered as Monday through Friday, excluding weekends and holidays. The dismissal fee must be paid at the time of the request.
