Dismissals

Fail to Maintain Financial Responsibility
If you received a citation for Failure to Show Proof of Financial Responsibility (No Insurance), No Driver’s License, or Failure to Display a Driver’s License, you may request that the citation be dismissed if you can submit valid proof of insurance or a valid driver’s license before your court date. Only sufficient proof that was valid at the date and time of the issuance of the citation can be filed with the Court for dismissal. Proof obtained after the citation was issued may not be eligible for dismissal.

Expired Inspection, Registration, Driver's License
If you received a citation for Expired Inspection Certificate, Expired Registration, or Expired Driver’s License, you may request that the citation be dismissed if the violation was corrected by the court date listed at the top of the citation. To request a dismissal, you must enter a written plea of Guilty or No Contest, provide the court with a receipt for each renewal, and pay the required $20 fee for each corrected violation before your court date. Violations not corrected by the court date or that are expired for more than 60 days will not be accepted as dismissal by the Court and the full fine amount will be due.

If you do not dispose of your citation by one of these methods before your court date, you must appear on the scheduled court date. If you fail to appear on the scheduled court date, it may result in additional fees.

If you have any questions about your citation you may contact the court via email:
court@cityofmelissa.com or by phone at (972)838-2034. 

A phone call to the court does not constitute an appearance.
