What are the warrants for in California?
misdemeanor dui and child endangerment
i never had a california license
Was your license suspended in Texas?
no. it expired in April and I ran a report showing that I had some outstanding Tx tickets I had to pay before I could renew it. So I paid the last one off last week. Called the DPS office and the lady informed me that it shows my license is cleared.
Unfortunately, it's very unlikely that you will be able to renew your Texas driver's license with warrants in California.
what will they do when I go there?
when I ran a report on my license the only thing that had shown up was the tickets that I needed to pay. wouldn't those have shown up as well?
I can't predict that for sure. Most likely they will not renew your license. You may even risk being arrested for the outstanding warrants in California.

I don't want to be disrespectful, however, I really would like to speak to another expert. Perhaps someone with more knowledge in this area. I am willing to pay for not only help but advice. Thanks.
I'm sorry, I know I probably sound like an idiot, but I want to understand that even though I was never issued a California license they won't renew mine in Texas because of the DUI warrant? I do want to get all of this cleared up, I'm truly trying to do the right things and make it right. If the lady at the DPS office told me my license is clear, does that mean only in Texas?
