If I have warrants, will my drivers license be suspended?
There are many different reasons a driver can have a drivers license suspended, such as failing to have adequate car insurance, leaving the scene of an accident, driving under the influence of alcohol, or getting too many points on his or her driving record. One reason that many people are unaware of having a suspended license, however, is having a warrant issued for your arrest.
An arrest warrant or bench warrant may be issued for:
- Failure to obey a court order
- Failure to pay a legally required fine
- Failure to complete community service
- Failure to follow terms of a probation agreement, such as completing a specified alcohol treatment program
- Failure to appear in court when required by law
Keep in mind that warrants may not necessarily have anything to do with your driving record or your behavior on the road. For example,

If you have any outstanding warrants, you will need to contact an attorney to have the matter resolved as soon as possible. Once the warrant is removed from your record, you will be able to apply to have your driving privileges reinstated. However, you may need to pay some additional fees or retake the written and road tests.
