A: It appears from what you've written that the DMV suspension was for not paying fines and/or costs for the May expired registration charge.
I do not know the facts of either of the expired r
A: (my apologies, I hadn't finished the answer)
I do not know the facts of either of the expired registration cases, but from what you said, the April case was dismissed and the May case was not.
Without more information, I can't tell you why that would have happened. Regardless, it is too late to appeal the May 2014 case.
You may want to go to the DMV (get a ride if you are still suspended) and ask for a "compliance summary," which will tell you what steps you must take to have your license reinstated.
Best of luck to you.
