My question involves a driver's license issued by the State of: Tennessee
I was recently arrested in Georgia for having a suspended Tennessee license in Georgia. When I check my license status on Tennessee's website, it shows up as "valid." I was not made aware of my license being suspended by Georgia officials. When I was arrested yesterday, the arresting officer told me that it is very possible that I was not made aware of my license being suspended because Georgia is not required to let Tennessee residents know of license being suspended in Georgia. I was put in a holding cell for hours until my parents posted bail. I was told that my suspension was already over when I was arrested, and that I was arrested because I had not gotten a new license. My court date is set in August. Does this mean I am not allowed to drive in Tennessee even though my license status in Tennessee is valid? Am I allowed to just pay all of my fines and fees and get my license renewed? Will this drop record of being arrested?
Please help me! This is my first time EVER being arrested, and I have no idea what to do or expect.
