I want to go get my real ID but dont want to get arrested at the DMV while im there. Will my DUI still appear onfile if i never took care of it and im not sure if i have a warrant also
You should probably deal with the DUI before you go to get a real ID. You should find out if you have a warrant and if you do, get it cleared. If you have a warrant you can be picked up at anytime. While you probably won't be arrested at the DMV, you definitely can, further, your license will likely show up as suspended (the ID and DL in CA share the same number) which may prevent them from issuing the ID and may also cause future problems at airports where you probably want to use it.
This answer is not legal advice, it may not even be relevant to the question answered, it definitely is does not establish an attorney/client relationship.
With an active warrant, you can be arrested at anytime, anywhere, without cause.

I also have much experience handling car accident cases. Although the information I provide is helpful, it is not legal advice. Although Avvo makes it clear to consumers that attorney answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship, some attorneys prefer to add their own disclaimers to answers.
