What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? North Carolina
We recently moved to NC and have not gotten our NC tags. My out of state tags expired over a year ago, but my Drivers Licence is still good for another 2 years.
We got pulled over and the officer issued two tickets:
Expired tags - GS 20-111
No NC Drivers Licence - GS 20-7
Since I had a valid out of state DL, can they issue me a ticket for this? I would pay it and just go on, but according to what I have read the second ticket is a moving violaiton and carries 3 points on my DL and 1 point on my insurance (25% cost increase).
So should I go to court and fight it or pay the fine ($240) and go on? If I contact a lawyer, the cost would be higher than $240 i assume.
