    Default If I Have a Warrant, and Go to the DMV to Reinstate My License

    My question involves an arrest warrant from the State of: CA

    is there a connection between my license and warrants? IE does the DMV notify the police if I go in to reinstate my license? Probably a silly question, but I am curious.

    Thanks.

    Yes. If there is a warrant in NCIC your DMV action could result in a notification to the appropriate agency.

    Thanks for your response. So does a warrant show up in the DMV computer? How likely is it that the authorites would be notified? (and show up at the DMV)?

    Generally, the local DMV office does not have access to that information. However, if your name has been flagged in the DMV system, then the Department of Justice might be notified if they run your name, and the local cops might be called.

    Best to take care of this now rather than later. The warrant will NOT go away with time and having the warrant can cause all sorts of problems in the future and prevent access to loans and government benefits.

    Why not just take care of the warrant and be done with the drama?
