What are some things I can do to resolve this matter? You should go to DMV, obtain a copy of your driving record and start clearing up any suspensions that you have.
I didn’t know my license was suspended? How can they convict me? If you failed to notify the DMV of an address change, and your suspension notice went to the wrong address, you’re failure to notify the DMV will not be a valid defense to the charge.
I’m not working and cannot afford to clear up my suspensions. What should I do? You need to come into compliance with the law. Ergo, the faster you clear up your suspension, the faster you can resolve your matter. Your failure to clear up your suspensions will adversely affect the resolution of your case.
