You just need to call the court in Oklahoma where your ticket was to find out how to pay it. There may be extra late fees, but you have to call to find out. Many courts have a pay by phone system, so you should be able to take care of it easily. And yes, if you get it taken care of, it will help your standing with the judge and prosecutor. Generally, only the prosecutor has the authority to throw the driving revoked citation out, and they don't usually do so. But it is possible, and at the very least, you will get a better result even if it's not thrown out by addressing the underlying ticket and get your license reinstated.
