You have several options in handling your ticket.  To make a payment online, click here. Online payments constitute a plea of no contest and are entered as a guilty judgment. The judgment is reported to DPS as a conviction on your driving record.

If eligible, there are two options available if you are wanting to keep the offense off of your driving record. We offer the options of deferred disposition or taking a driving safety class.  

Contact the Municipal Court at (817) 617-3732 or (817) 617-3757metro
