A California DMV Abstract is a method to clear the VC 40509.5 hold from your license, in order to get your driving privileges reinstated with the DMV. It costs $10, but we pay this fee for you when you hire us to clear your license and represent you in court.

Am I Eligible for a California DMV Abstract?
If you have failed to appear on a traffic ticket in Los Angeles, you are eligible for an abstract as long as you don’t have multiple failures to appear on a single ticket (it’s ok to have have several tickets with one failure to appear each, though).
But even if you aren’t eligible for a California DMV abstract due to multiple failures to appear on a single case, some courts allow a Los Angeles traffic ticket attorney to do a “walk-in” and see the judge the same day to release the hold. Call us for help at 888-250-8450.
How Do I Get a California DMV Abstract?
If you failed to appear on an LA traffic ticket, your case will go to the collections agency GC Services. Don’t pay GC Services if you don’t have to. You or your attorney needs to go to the court, calendar a new appearance date with GC Services, purchase an abstract from the court clerk, and put your matter back on calendar. This will have the effect of releasing the VC 40509.5 hold from your license.
