Q: Have a bench warrant for failure to appear for traffic violation on July 29 2022. Didn’t know about the court date.
The ticket was for driving on suspended liscence after I called dmv they say my liscense wasn’t suspended
A: Hire a lawyer to file a motion to recall the bench warrant and reschedule the trial. Get a printout of your driving record. Give it to your lawyer.
Leonard A Englander agrees with this answer
A: You should hire an attorney to file a motion to recall the warrant. These motions are usually granted if filed by an attorney. You also need a certified copy of your complete driving record to show your license was valid on the date of the incident. You can get this from the MVA online or in person.
