I was homeless for several years and didn't have a stable address and as a result of my circumstances I wasn't receiving my court notices, which, resulted in being found guilty and my liscense being suspended.
You cannot simply have traffic citations dismissed. If you failed to appear for court, your license is suspended until you resolve the cases. If they are "must appear" offenses that carry possible jail time, then there would be a warrant for your arrest and you would have to turn yourself in or hire an attorney to get the warrant recalled.
If they are minor traffic tickets like speeding, you can go to the courthouse and ask that you be permitted to prepay the fines and get a court date to have a trial. You could then resolve the cases in court. If the fines are less than what you paid, you will receive a refund of the difference.
If too much time has gone by, the court will not let you do this. However, you can pay the fines and then immediately file a motion to reopen the cases and ask that a trial date be scheduled. You can explain what happened. It will be up to the judge whether to reopen the case. Obviously, you will receive points for any tickets you pay until the court date assuming it is reopened.

Once your license is suspended, you will need to address the underlying suspensions with motor vehicle administration, if they are as a result of fines for payable tickets. If you are suspended for failing to appear in court on a must appear ticket, you need to contact the court - you will need to have the matter set back in for a hearing with the court. Keep in mind there is likely a bond that is or will be set for your appearance at any future trial. You need an attorney. You can file a request to have the matter set back in and release on recognizance with substantial basis.
