The ticket itself is $10.Of course, before you can resolve the ticket, you have to show that your registration is current, which means paying the underlying DMV fees and late penalties.

The fastest way to renew is online, at http://www.dmv.ca.gov/online/vrir/vr_top2.htm . Otherwise you have to do it by snail mail.

The amount of fees and penalties depends on what kind of car it is and how late the renewal is. Your paper DMV renewal notice says how much exactly. General fees and penalty amounts are at http://www.dmv.ca.gov/vr/vr_info.htm .

Once you have your new registration in hand, bring it with you and go in person to the nearest Highway Patrol office or sheriff or police department. It doesn't need to be the same one that issued your ticket. An officer needs to complete the "Certificate of Correction" on the back of your ticket.

Make a copy of the front and back of the ticket and keep them for your records. You can either mail it (certified with a return receipt) with your $10, or go in person to the courthouse.

If you can't do all that by the due date, call the courthouse or go in person, and ask for an extension. They will probably grant your request without any trouble.

If your car is parked on a public street and it has expired tags, you could get a citation. I'm not sure if it's technically a "parking ticket" or not.

There is no grace period for expired tags. Many police officers, however, will allow tags to be expired up to five days before giving the driver a ticket.

Yes, you can get more than one ticket for expired tags in Missouri within 30 days. However, most judges will only fine you once and dismiss the other tickets if you have gotten tags by the court date.

First, the car will likely get impounded because the tags are expired and the owner is not with the car. You can get a ticket as the driver. Drivers are responsible for not only how they drive but knowing what they drive can be legally on the road. An unregistered car shouldn't be on the road.
