My question involves a driver's license issued by the State of: Missouri/Minnesota
I have run into a crazy stupid set of events so please bear with me. I received a ticket a while back and at the time the ticket was due to be paid I was unemployed and therefore couldn't pay it. I tried calling the courthouse on the 3rd because the ticket was due on the 8th (or so I thought) in order to work out a payment arrangement. I was then informed that my court date was actually on the 3rd (a couple hours prior to my call) and I had missed it (due to the police officer's terrible handwriting) and therefore would be required to write a letter to the judge to work out a payment option. I wrote two letters, with enclosed copies of the citation, with no response. Now, come to find out, when I tried to get a job as a delivery man I was informed that my license has been suspended due to non-payment. Now I just moved to missouri and I had received a letter from collections about the amount I owed from the judgement. I also just had my wallet stolen and don't have my missouri driver's license yet because of the suspension. The only forms of I.D. I have are my clipped MO license from the last time I lived down here, my expired temporary papers (from getting my MN license) and my birth certificate, & ss card. I just got a job and plan on buying a car so I will obviously need my license back. So here's the million dollar question/questions. By paying the bill I received from collections will that reinstate my license or do I have to pay other fees? And... if I only have my old clipped MO license how do I get a new license? Will they accept the expired papers with my MN license number on them? My biggest thing is I have no way of getting back to MN and so I'm hoping that I don't have to do that to get this stuff taken care of.
