If you had insurance at the time of the citation and take proof of insuranc to the judge, he will USUALLY dismiss the ticket. Unfortunately, you will have to appear in person to do that, and there is no guarantee that it will be dismissed, so be respectful to the judge. Absolutely. You're required to have proof of insurance with at all times while operating a motor vehicle. However, that ticket is usually dismissed after you show proof of insurance to the court.

If you are not an insured under the definitions and terms of the owners insurance policy then you "can" be ticketed. Whether you will be ticketed depends on whether the attending officer checks his computer to see if you are in fact an insured driver or not.
