What is a registration-related offense?

A vehicle registration-related offense is considered driving your car while the registration is suspended, revoked, or canceled. These are all considered criminal offenses. There are additional penalties that may apply if you have been convicted of driving a vehicle with a suspended or canceled registration.

What to do if charged with a registration offense

First and foremost, if you do happen to get pulled over for driving with expired tags/registration, you will receive a fine. Even if you are parked legally, you can still get a ticket for having expired registration tags. Depending on the officer or citation, the consequences may vary. However, you will probably end up with a grace period, but you should take care of your ticket as soon as possible. If the offense has been repeated multiple times, you may benefit from reaching out to an attorney.
