OmniBase Services of Texas maintains and administers the central database for the cities and counties contracted to use the Department of Public Safety's Failure to Appear Program. (Please note, not all cities and counties utilize this service.)

If you are charged with Failure to Appear, not only will the court issue a warrant but you will be reported to the DPS Omnibase system. Once you have been reported to Omni, the DPS will not allow you to renew your Texas driver's license. In addition, if your driver's license expires while an Omni hold is in place your driving privileges are suspended, putting you at risk of being arrested and jailed on a charge of Driving While License Suspended/Invalid.

If you suspect you have an Omni hold on you license due to a Failure to Appear call Omnibase at 1-(800) 686-0570 or the DPS at 1-(512) 424-2600.

You must have the driver's license # and date of birth for the person you're checking on. This is an automated service.
It will list any fines owed and in what county, etc.
