What will they do for my first offense of driving with a suspended license? If I get my license before court, will that help?

I agree with Mr. Jennings. Most of the municipal and district courts are usually far more interested in ensuring that drivers are properly licensed, so resolving the license issue before the court date will never hurt your case, and will often result in dismissal on costs if you can present a valid license at hearing.
Generally speaking, you are going to be better off by getting your license back before your court date. Many prosecutors will dismiss the ticket with costs upon proper showing that you have obtained your license. Every office is different; however, and this outcome is not guaranteed.
