I received citations and subsequently warrants for expired registration, driving without proof of financial responsibility and driving without a license. The officer gave me incorrect date and time details for the court date and since I missed it I’ve also been issued a failure to appear. Because of this, on their site there’s a warrant listed for each citation.
The day after I was pulled over for all this, I was stopped again. More citations for no license, no insurance and speeding despite not actually speeding, but I can’t prove that. The stipulation of the second set of citations is that I obtain a license and insurance to stave off conviction and having them added to my record. Would I be able to take a drivers test and obtain a license with pending warrants? I’ve never had a license before.
You need to hire an attorney in order to make an appearance on your behalf to the court that has pending warrants. Once they take care of your tickets on that first case you can then safely go to the DMV without worrying about being arrested at the DMV for the pending warrants. Good luck you to and have a great day.
