Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Yes, for a suspended license ticket there is a mandatory court appearance. The supporting deposition is the officer's testimony supporting the tickets. You will get a subpoena to court. You will need to first take care of the pending ticket in the court where it was pending and get proof of payment of that ticket. Once you do so, then you have to provide that proof to DMV and ask DMV for reinstatement. Then you need to appear in court where this latest ticket was entered and you need to show how you took care of the obligation and paid off the ticket and got the license reinstated and most times the judge will agree to dismiss the citation.
