Unfortunately, you cannot get a driver's license with an outstanding warrant. So while you can try to get a new license in Texas, if the clerk at the DMV checks the national database and finds the warrant he or she will send you home without one.

You will also not be able to obtain disability benefits with an outstanding warrant for any offense which could potentially subject you to prison.

I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
