Driving in California with an Out-of-state drivers license a criminal offense?

I was recently pulled over for having expired tags. The police officer gave me a fix it ticket for the tags, but he also gave me a ticket to schedule a court date for a misdemeanor charge of driving in California with an out-of-state drivers license. I looked up the legalities, and the California DMV does state that you need to get a new drivers license after 10 days of being in the state of California. I have been driving with my Idaho license here for over a year. I have scheduled the court date and now I am worried. Is there anything I can do to get out of this? What would be my best course of action?

Driving in heavy CA traffic

I am a 52 y/o woman with a perfect driving record but for the last 20 years I have only driven in Idaho--Boise is the biggest traffic I have seen in the last 20 years. We may be moving to the Fresno area and I will want to drive the freeways to LA and SF and be confident about it. I need advice because I have really developed some anxiety when I think about it. Last weekend my husband and I rented a car and drove from the Fresno airport to a smaller city nearby and I was even nervous as a passenger when he had to use the GPS to find our ways on the freeways. We had to keep up our speed even when we did not know when/where to turn off. The Hertz GPS magellan was not that good but it still looked nerve-wracking to me! What advice can you give me? I would love to be able to take off from Fresno and drive to LA for the day sometime. How will I get confident about this type of driving? It seems the traffic goes much faster than I am used to and people are changing lanes faster and with less notice too. I would be smart enough to know not to head to LA during the rush hours but even in lower traffic I am experiencing anxiety even thinking about it! Thanks for your help!

    How do I do the smog test to register my California car out of state?

    For the California folks: I go to school out of state, and I accidentally let my vehicle registration expire. I'm trying to figure out how I can get it done quickly and remotely. My primary concern is the smog test - I'm due for one this year. Searching the internet has given me mixed responses, with some saying you have to go back to CA to get smog tests, and others saying you can waive it in absentia. I need to drive as soon as possible, so I'd really appreciate a prompt response! Thanks!

    Went to get my smog test done today. I almost passed it. The problem was that my engine is running a TINY bit too rich. There were more hydrocarbons and carbon monoxide coming out of my car's tailpipe than C.A.R.B. would have liked. The guy that was working at the smog test place was nice enough not to red flag my car for not having my pre-cat. [more inside]

And is there a particularly quiet/desolate part of town where I can sit for a few hours and gather said recordings? (Recommendations for other desolate, train-heavy spots within a two-hour drive also welcome.)
