Failure to Maintain Financial Responsibility (No Insurance) 
A second or subsequent conviction of an offense under the Texas motor vehicle 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 department of public safety for two years from the 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. 

YOU MUST WAIT 5 WORKING DAYS FROM THE DAY YOU RECEIVE YOUR CITATION BEFORE THE MUNICIPAL COURT IS ABLE TO PROCESS ANY TRANSACTIONS. THE MUNICIPAL COURT WILL NOT HAVE YOUR CITATION, AND IS UNABLE TO PROCESS ANY TRANSACTION UNTIL THE ORIGINAL CITATION IS RECEIVED IN THE COURT.
