    The DMV isn't law enforcement. It's unlikely that you'll get arrested there, but if you get stopped by the police for any reason, it's quite likely you will be arrested and held until Louisiana decides if they are going to come get you. That's likely to be repeated until the warrants are taken care of.

    I suspect highly that your Louisiana license is already suspended. California will not issue you a license.

    I can't speak for CA, but here in FL we usually have a trooper stationed at DMV offices. They just sit in the car and wait for people with licensing "issues" to attempt to illegally drive (ie they are denied a license due to being suspended in another state). They're not looking for warrants, just people who know darn well that they shouldn't be driving, yet insist on doing so. If you're going down there, make darn sure that you're NOT driving unless you actually HAVE a valid license - get a friend or family member to take you, take public transportation, etc. Because if they stop you due to suspected suspended license, you can expect the warrant to turn up.
