A defective ticket would have incorrect information that prevents you from presenting a valid defense to the citation or is blatantly incorrect in such a way that it could be easily defeated. There is no website that has a specific definition of a defective ticket, 2 judges in the same courthouse could use different definitions. The missing info for state of registration could hardly make a ticket defective, especially if the vehicle is licensed in the state in which the ticket was issued.
If you feel my answer is rude, mean, snarky or in anyway not to your liking, I did my job. You don't need to tell me.
