Will this affect any failure to appear holds on my license?

No. Failure to appear is not related to surcharges.  Under the Failure To Appear / Failure To Pay Program, Texas may deny the renewal of a Texas Driver’s License if you have failed to appear for a citation or failed to satisfy a judgment ordering the payment of a fine. Your Texas Driver’s License may be denied renewal until the reported citations or violations are cleared and reported to be so by the courts. You are encouraged to visit the Texas Failure To Appear website and check to make sure you don’t have any reported outstanding cases that could prevent your Texas Driver’s License from being renewed.
