I'm applying for the Texas Bar exam. However, I'm originally from California and have received a number of traffic violations in my heyday. Per the Texas requirements, I'm required to list all failure to appear's that I have received. As I run searches on my driving record in various counties, many of the records state "bail forfeiture" and paid. I'm wondering if this means that I have received a failure to appear. Thanks in advance.
You should re-post this in Texas. If you were in California I’d advice you to take care of all those outstanding tickets.
Bail forfeiture for traffic tickets is not a failure to appear. lt means that the court took the payment for the traffic ticket from the "bail" posted (pre-payment of the ticket).
