DUI & other Arrest Warrants Trigger License Suspensions

If you have an outstanding default warrant in Massachusetts, no matter how old, the Massachusetts RMV will suspend your license or right to drive in Massachusetts and flag you in the National Driver Register, so that you cannot get a license issued or renewed in another state, unless and until the arrest warrant is cleared and you present a release to the Mass RMV.

Mass. DUI Lawyer Paul B. Watkins has been busy lately, handling old Operating Under the Influence of Alcohol cases which resulted in the issuance of arrest warrants, from as far back as the 1980s. These warrants have prevented license renewals across the country. With his in-depth knowledge of court records and procedures, Attorney Watkins has been able to successfully argue for dismissal of these old DUI cases and get the arrest warrants recalled, so that his clients can renew and reinstate their expired or revoked driver’s licenses.

The recent increase in National Driver Registry (NDR) holds on licenses is apparently due to the Massachusetts courts entering old warrants into the computerized warrant database. My office has seen a substantial increase in license issued related to old default warrants. This increase has also been confirmed by the court staff, who handle warrants on a daily basis.

Clearing and old warrant for DUI, driving on a suspended license, reckless driving, no liability policy, unlicensed operation, or for any other criminal offense, can be confusing and frustrating. Many clients do not even know where to start. Living out of state can make clearing the warrant even more difficult. Fortunately, Mass. DUI Attorney and Criminal Defense Lawyer Paul Watkins is able to clear these warrants with the client experiencing a minimum of inconvenience.
