What is your question about this for us?
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Does getting a temp license, signing sheet of paper mean I appear at court over confiscated license even though I'm not looking to contest ticket?
Expert:  Law Educator, Esq. replied 9 months ago.

Thank you for your reply.

In Louisiana the police take your license in lieu of you putting up cash bond to insure you will appear in court. Once you appear in court and pay the ticket, your license is returned. If you pay by mail (if the clerk allows mail payments depending on the violation), then they will mail your license back to you once you pay. So you have to at least show up at the court clerk's office and you can pay then and your license will be given back to you then.
