What if I fail to appear at the hearing?

If you do not appear for the hearing, an order to show cause will be scheduled. If you appear for the hearing but fail to pay necessary court costs/fines, you will receive a warning letter from the court. You have 14 days to respond. If after 14 days you have not responded, the Secretary of State's office will be notified and your license will be suspended. Your failure to appear will show on your record as an outstanding ticket.
