All juveniles, under the age of 17, are required by State law to appear in open court with a parent or guardian. Juveniles who fail to appear or fail to pay their fines will be reported to the Texas Department of Public Safety to deny issuance of their driver’s license. If a juvenile disobeys a court order, the court may order DPS to suspend or deny issuance of their driver’s license or find the child in contempt and assess a fine not to exceed $500.
