I got into a car crash by myself with no other car involved, no property damaged. The officer asked for my license but I said I didn’t have it and he checked my information in the dmv system and said it’s not appearing. I told him I have the paper since I just got it but he told me to email him a picture of it or else I can have a misdemeanor and such. I got a notice in the mail about the situation. If I can get my license before court what will happen? Also how long would it take to process for the ticket to come through or a court date as the dmv driving appt is pretty booked.
If you do get your license before the court date, that would help you, but as to exactly what will happen, no one can really tell you. Instead, you ought to just do your best to show up in court with such a license or proof that you have an appointment or reservation to get a driving test at the DMV and show that to the prosecutor and judge.
There are some glaring problems with this. You say you "just got it" but you tell us you haven't taken the driving test. If you haven't taken the driving test you don't have a license since you can't have a license without taking the driving test. Having preliminary application papers is not the same as having a drivers license. It is illegal in California (VC 12500) to drive without a drivers license.
