I'm trying to get my license back dwls/3rd degree.
I have 6 in collection 5 different courts that are 10 years old, and 4 that are 6 years old (between 2 different courts). I'm trying to figure out a way to get my license back I have been pulled over a few months ago went to court judge talked to me like some of them may have dropped at least to prevent license from being able to obtain. I contacted D.O.L. they gave me the above tickets as being what's holding it.
(3 speeding; 1 impeding traffic; 1 no valid license;
2 no insurance; and 3 dwls/3rdegree).
Somewhere I heard something about requesting court to make a ticket not prevent me from obtaining license? Or archiving? All the tickets are in collections at a couple different collection agencies so the down that they require per ticket and the mandatory monthly amount . . . there just is no way I can do all at once. I'm in the state of Washington. Tickets are between, Pierce County, King County and one in Thurston County.
What you would need to do is put a motion in front of a judge in each county to pull your tickets out of collections. If you can't do that (not all courts will allow that), then you will have to make arrangements with the collection companies. Sometimes they will release your license if you are on a payment plan and making the payments. One way or another you would have to pay for these or at least be taking steps toward doing so.
Your only choices are: (1) pay the old tickets or (2) get on a payment plan with the courts/collection agencies. Once you've done one of those, the courts will release the holds on your license. There is no separate option of not paying the tickets but still getting your license released.
Until this gets done, every time you drive you run the risk of picking up a criminal charge of Driving While License Suspended. People can get stuck in a revolving cycle of tickets, DWLS charges, more fines. Try your best to get out of this cycle before it goes too far.
If you need the license for employment purposes, make sure you note this in any motion you file and point out that your ability to earn a living is directly related to your ability to pay the old tickets.
