Can you renew your driver's license with a warrent out for your arrest?
Find answers to your legal question.

Can you renew your driver's license with a warrent out for your arrest?

My b/f got a speeding ticket awhile back (not sure how long) and the things that their might be a warrent out for his arrest and his license expired. Will they issue him a license if he has a warrent out for his arrest?


Not likely. Go to the court clerk, ask to have the case sent to court, ask the judge to lift the warrant, and comply with whatever you need to do (pay, etc.).

Once the warrant is lifted (plus about 10 administrative days) you should be able to have your license renewed.

For your peace of mind: Not a guarantee, but while courts will issue a bench warrant, many courts do not issue warrants for arrest on traffic tickets. The warrants just prevent you from getting your license, etc.

no i don't think so. He may have lost his license from the speeding ticket or may loose it if he did not pay the ticket

Warrants aren't tracked by a DMV, at least not in my state. Suspensions and revocations are though. If he is suspended for failing to pay the ticket, he won't be able to renew his license until he pays the ticket and brings the receipt in to the driver license office and then pays the reinstatement fee.

LOL i saw a guy at the DMV getting his tags or license or something...and they asked him to step to the side for a sec..and two cops came out from the backroom and handcuffed him. LOL I don't think it was b/c he won the lottery :)

old biker dude

He's toast. time to straighten up, pay the debts, and get out from under it.

i wouldnt try it,.. but i am sure that you can

I doubt they will, the best thing to do is turn himself in at the local court house, and he should just have to pay the ticket and a small fine, that way he will not get arrested.

Not if he gets a warrant

He license remains suspended

It really depends on how big b/f's speeding ticket was. I don't really know about why there is a warrant out for him because you did not explain that in detail. Yes, states now can revoke or suspend your drivers' license for many things...more commonly, failure to pay child support, which I totally agree with. Again, it depends on the state, and the severity of whatever action the warrant serves. You must remember that driving is only a privelege...NOT A RIGHT, and that the privelege can be taken away anytime, by any means! Later!!
