Failure to Pay
Failure to pay your outstanding fines, fees and court costs within 90 days of sentencing will result in the suspension of your driver’s license. After ninety (90) days, the Clerk’s Office will notify the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) that you have failed to pay your financial obligations resulting in a suspended license. All fines, fees, court costs and administrative fees must be paid in full to clear the suspension with the DHSMV.
Clay County has contracted with third party collection agencies to collect outstanding fines, fees and court costs which are owed. Should you fail to pay all of your costs within ninety (90) days of sentencing, your account will be turned over to a collection agency resulting in an additional 25% of the total amount due.
