HelloThis is Samuel. First of all, thank you for your service to our country.How did you get into the deferred drivers program? Was this ticket related? Has that fine been paid?
Thank you. I suggest you need to pay the amount due before you can get your license reinstated. And so you should contact the clerk of the court, show them any ID that you have, explain that you do not have a Driver's License because of the apparent outstanding fine and you want to pay it. And get a receipt for the payment.
Even if there is a hearing set, take the money to court, explain you have no valid license. You can show a copy of your invalid license. And tell them you don't drive, etc. And ask them are you going to take my payment so this matter can be closed or not.
Thank you. No, you cannot go to jail because you want to pay your fine. When you go to the hearing have the money to make that payment. As matter of fact, see if you can make the payment without a hearing and then have the hearing dismissed.
Jail is generally reserved for Violent offenders. This is not a violent offense. So please try to relax about going to jail. That just won't happen.
You're welcome. As I stated, you can bring your current license with you. And make the fine payment at the hearing. There would be no jail involved.
