What if you have a felony e bench warrant in SC but want to get a ID card from the DMV in Texas,can I do it?

Ganado, TX |

I have a felony e warrant is SC for receiving goods under false pretense of $141.00 the guy says but I went to Texas for good.Can I get a ID from the DMV without being arrested or it being in there system. It's not a serious felony from what my lawyer tells me that over time it want be as bad.

I want to get this taken care of but need to make money first. If I get a new ID will the DMV know if I have a warrant or not? The aswers I'm getting are not really telling me if I go in to the DMV to get another ID if they will know if I have a warrant or not in there system?
