DMV License Suspension in California Due to a Warrant
Warrants / Default Judgments
If you have an outstanding warrant on your record for failing to appear in court, whether it be criminal or civil, the DMV can suspend your driving privileges. When you fail to appear in court on a criminal matter, including traffic infraction citations, the court will issue a warrant for your arrest and will subsequently notify the DMV of that outstanding warrant.
The DMV will then suspend your driving privileges until the warrant is recalled. In addition, if you have been served with a civil lawsuit and failed to appear in court by means of a responsive pleading within 30 days of being served, then the court may file a default judgment against you and subsequently notify the DMV, which will then suspend your driving privileges until the default judgment is satisfied or set aside. You have the right to have an attorney assist you with recalling warrants and/or resolving default judgments.
