You'll need a free legal services attorney to assist you probably. Otherwise, set out a payment plan and get this taken care of. If you need a driver's license that means you must have access to car, which means that you would also be responsible for money to pay for insurance on the car, so there is going to be a source of money to pay for insurance and gas for the car - and maintenance, right ? So what is that source ? That is the same source fro which you need to expend money to get these old tickets taken care of. Have a ticket attorney work on this for you.
If you just need a drivers license for identification, you could just get a passport. That is not restricted if you have old traffic tickets because it is federally issued.
This is not a legal opinion given the question that you posed. It is guidance based on common sense recommendations that you may choose to consider and some thoughts to help clarify the matters that you ask about. I am licensed only in the state of Texas. There are many other facts that exist or may arise that you did not express in your question in this forum that are/could be critical to providing an accurate response. Thus, the response I give is very general. I strongly suggest getting a private consultation with an attorney. That is likely to be in your best interest if you have a legal problem , question, concern, or need. Although AVVO describes this site as providing free legal advice, it is really a simple Q&A forum. The volunteer attorneys provide general answers. No specific legal advice is given here and no attorney-client relationship is established. For precise direction and legal advice, please consult in person with an attorney in your area. Be sure to bring all relevant paperwork with you. Best of luck !
