Good afternoon. Can you share with me what the court case was for? I am just trying to get an idea of what the original charge was, that you failed to appear on?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
It was driving with a revoked license. It was revoked because my insurance had lapsed a year prior and I had not renewed my registration. Everything is now been cleared except I missed the date for driving without a license. I DO have my license back though

Thank you. Yes, you do want to appear in court and show the Judge that the situation has been corrected. You want to show that the license is now valid, has been reinstated and that you have proper insurance and a current registration. When you do so, you can also explain the basis for missing court ( if you want) and ask the court to possible consider dismissing the charge or amending it, since it has been corrected or imposing the minimum fines and court costs.
