The City of Edinburg is now participating in the ScoffLaw Program. The program states that a person who disregards the law, especially one who has not paid fines owed, may be refused vehicle registration. The program was implemented by Hidalgo County in 2012 and denies registration or renewals to residents with outstanding fines/or fees past due more than 90 days. Person/s with outstanding citations can also pay online at Hidalgo County Courts.
How to pay for outstanding fines on traffic violations:
- Must appear in person at the Edinburg Municipal Court
- Must pay an administrative fee of $20 for each past due violation associated with the outstanding balance
- Once fines/fees are collected, a Clearance Letter will be issued and must be presented at the Hidalgo County Tax Collectors Office, which will then be submitted to the Motor Vehicle Registration Clerk for vehicle registration eligibility
