California_DMV_headquartersWhy Do I Have a California DMV License Hold?

There are several reasons why you may have a California DMV license hold:

  • you have an unpaid traffic ticket;
  • you have an outstanding warrant;
  • you have unpaid child support.

If you have a traffic ticket with a VC 40508 failure to appear, or have a warrant due to a driving on a suspended license charge, we can help you get your license back if your case is in Southern California. Call us at 888-250-8450 for help or use the Contact Form to the right.

What Happens if I Have a California DMV License Hold?

If you have a California DMV license hold and do not clear it by the date indicated in your letter from the DMV (you may not have even received your letter from the DMV), your license hold will ripen into a driver’s license suspension.

Often, our clients weren’t even aware their licenses were suspended, and before they know it they are being pulled over and cited for a VC 14601.1 driving with a suspended license charge.

How Do I Clear My California DMV License Hold?

How you clear up the hold on your license depends on why it’s there in the first place. If it’s an unpaid traffic ticket in Southern California, in most cases we can remove your case from the collections agency GC Services, put your case back with the court, and get a California DMV abstract, which will clear the hold from your license so you can get your license reinstated.

If you have a misdemeanor or felony case with a warrant, we can go to court and clear your warrant, which will have the effect of releasing the hold from your license.
