A: A Failure to Pay will result in a stop on your license but not a suspension. However if you are stopped you could be charged with driving without valid driving privileges. Go to the clerk's office and take care of this matter immediately. If you still can't pay you can file a motion and ask the judge to give you additional time to pay.
