    Default .

    basically a friend has a warrant for failure to appear to court for receiving stolen property, after the prelim, they became homeless and the only way to get back on their feet was to relocate to another state. Now that they're doing better they want to get their licenses, keep in mind that they never had a license before in any state. Should they try and get the license or if by going to get the license will they be arrested? Are the DMV's computer symstems linked to the police criminal record systems?

    Default Bench Warrant

    Your friend should look into resolving the warrant and charge in the other state.

    Default Warrant in Another State

    If the driver's license is suspended in the other state, it is likely that the suspension will quickly catch up with him if he tries to obtain a new driver's license.
