Inquiry: A police officer pulled me over for a random ride check. I had forgotten my license at home and let him know that. He then told me that my license had expired almost a month ago and gave me a “drive motor vehicle no license” ticket. I didn’t even realize my license was expired, as I do not drive much. I also went and renewed my license the same day. If I take my temporary license to the police station within 24 hours could my ticket be pardoned?

Response:  Generally an officer would have to mark something along the lines of “48HTTP” on the top right corner of the ticket for ’48 hours time to produce.’  However, if you would like to contest the charge at court, we could always review the Prosecutor’s evidence and sit down on your behalf to see if the charge could be withdrawn.  If you would like to discuss your matter in more detail, we offer a no-cost initial review of cases via our toll-free number 1-866-801-8299.
