Hello. Actually, if you had a warrant against you for an upaid ticket, this is why your license was suspended. What happened was you never went to court, so the court took away your license. This is normal.

So there was a court proceeding, it wasn't just the DMV deciding to do this on their own. You must go back to the traffic court where they took away your license, pay the ticket and any other fees you owe, and ask to have your license reinstated. This is the only way. The DMV can't do anything because this is a court order.

Take care,
Kimberly

But the cops took my license the night I got arrested....haven't seen it since.....never went to court for them to have taken it.............no court took it, the cops did!!

Ok, you are confused. The police will actually take your license, but that is only because the court ordered it and it was in the computer system. So when they pulled you over, and looked up your name, they were told about the court order and to take your license.

The only way to get it back is to go back to court.
