What do I do if my license is suspended by the Department of Motor Vehicles?
If you have been suspended for failure to appear: This means you have to enter a plea to the ticket. You should contact the court for the best way to proceed.
If you have been suspended for failure to pay: This means you have failed to pay the fine/surcharge amount that was assessed by the Court. You should contact the Court for the exact amount that is owed after the suspension is in effect.
