As previously answered, you may be able to apply for the Traffic Ticket Amnesty program as detailed above. As for your question about being "recalled," once you plead guilty to a traffic ticket the point goes on your license and cannot be removed or masked if you did not opt for a traffic school program. So yes, the points will appear on your record. The Amnesty program helps you get your license back if you agree to pay on your tickets, you still need to be aware that if you have 4 or more points in 12 months, 6 or more points in 18 months and 8 or more points on your license in 24 months, they your license can still remain suspended for being a negligent operator. If you have a FTA (failure to appear) you still need to appear in court. If these cases are FTP (failures to pay) then look into the Amnesty program.

This might be what is going on: effective immediately, California Vehicle Code § 42008.8 is a traffic ticket amnesty program that will reinstate driver’s licenses that are suspended for failure to appear and/or failure to pay traffic fines. The driver’s license reinstatement will occur upon the license holder’s entry into a payment plan for outstanding fines. All persons who apply for the amnesty program are eligible for a 50% reduction in outstanding fines. If the license holder is low-income, the amnesty program will reduce up to 80% of the outstanding fines. Civil assessments for failures to pay and failures to appear issued under Cal. Penal Code section 1214.1 are waived. Any persons eligible to have a driver's license, including undocumented individuals who are eligible for a driver's license under AB 60, are entitled to participate in the traffic amnesty program if they meet the eligibility requirements. Applications for the fine reduction and license reinstatement will be accepted starting October 1, 2015.
Hard to say what that means. Did the DMV issue you a license? What does the DMV say this means? Any lingering confusion, go to the traffic court and ask the clerk. Maybe you got lucky and caught a break.
