It is time to get this issue cleared up. I assume that because you are renewing you ID card, there are remaining issues which have kept you from obtaining a DL. I also assume you have become tired of having this warrant issue over your head. Hire an attorney who can probably convince the court to impose a fine and court costs and let you move on with your life.

The DMV does not run background/warrant checks when processing requests. (At least I have never heard of it happening before.) But you should hire an attorney to clear the warrant up.
