I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear about your situation.
You can try calling your probation officer, if one was appointed, to see if they will help you get the deadline extended for making payments. If that's not an option, though, and you're not able to pay the amount owed, it is in your best interests to hire a lawyer. That's because a lawyer can go to court for you, argue your case, present any payment you've been able to make, and then ask for more time or ask to recall the warrant and extend your probation. If you walk into the courthouse yourself, and there's a warrant out for violating your probation, they'll take you to jail for violating your probation. You could try calling to verify whether there's a warrant, but your own words make it sound like there is. Or you could try seeing if anyone would loan you the money to pay so you could then go to Texas to see your family.
The only way to become a legal driver is to get this taken care of so your license can be reinstated. That means paying what is owed or having a lawyer negotiate some kind of reduction where you either pay something or do more community service to get the remaining fines paid.
