Going to traffic court in the hope of reinstating a suspended license is a pretty straightforward process, although it can vary depending on the state in which you've been charged and where the court is being held. Most traffic courts are quickly-moving, fairly casual environments, but something like a suspended driver's license is a more serious infraction, and you might be dealing with some more complex situations.
The traffic court process can vary depending on what you are in court for:
Of course, you shouldn't do this alone. A suspended license can be serious, and if you're pleading not guilty and attempting to fight the system, or if you're plea bargaining with the prosecutor, you might be in over your head. You have the right to be provided a public defender, and you also may get an attorney on your own if you wish. The more complex your violation situation was, the more help the lawyer will be both in preparation for court and during the actual hearing.
