No Registration Ticket
Everyone is familiar with the simple law enforcement request, “License and registration please.” Hopefully you have heard it more onscreen than in reality, but regardless, you know that when you drive any vehicle, you should have both of these documents handy. If you do not and are pulled over, you may be issued a no registration ticket. For those unfamiliar with this sort of traffic violation, keep reading to learn more.
What Is a No Registration Ticket?
To legally drive anywhere in this country, you must have a license and vehicle registration in your possession at all times. If you do not, you can receive a no registration ticket from a police officer or other law enforcer. Keep in mind, even if you have your vehicle registration with you, if it is out of date, you can still be issued this type of ticket. This type of traffic ticket is not considered a moving violation, so there will be no points against your driving record or required traffic school attendance should you receive one.
If I Receive a No Registration Ticket, What Should I Do?
Should you be issued a ticket of this kind, carefully read the fine print on your ticket. Oftentimes, citations do not require you to make an appearance in court. In most cases, you can pay traffic fines online, by mail or in person at a courthouse. Be sure you pay your fine by the date specified on your ticket. Otherwise you may be required to appear in court for a failure to pay a traffic fine.
