You have to show proof of insurance any time an officer asks to see it, even if you don't get a ticket. Many states have made mandatory auto insurance a law. Therefore any time you are stopped for some infraction involving the use of your auto, proof of insurance is included with the showing of your license and registration.

If given a ticket for no proof of insurance and insurance had lapsed but have since gotten insurance what should I do?

the only thing that matters is whether or not you had insurance at the date you got pulled over. if you got insurance two weeks later that will not work. if you had valid insurance but did not have a copy of it with you contact the court and let them know...they will ask for proof of coverage. if you can provide that they will dismiss the ticket. acceptable proof of insurance is an insurance card showing you had coverage on said date or a letter of experience from your insurance company.

If you only have a driver's permit and are ticketed for not wearing a seatbelt in someone else's car will your insurance be raised?

"If you only have a driver's permit and are ticketed for not wearing a seatbelt in someone else's car will your insurance be raised?" It depends on how your state treats seat belt violations. In most states they are not entered on your record so they will have no effect on your insurance. In other states they are entered and may cause a slight insurance increase but it will be negligble compared to a speeding ticket. lwpat http://www.speedingticketcentral.com


Can a Georgia resident get a ticket in Tennessee for no proof of insurance if pulled over?

Yes. You have to conform to the traffic laws of the state you are driving in, even if you are from another state. If you're from Georgia (which requires auto insurance by law) and got pulled over in Tennessee for not having insurance, you have to pay for that ticket in Tennessee. The only states that don't require auto insurance are New Hampshire and Wisconsin. All other states have a requirement. However if you live in New Hampshire, as an example, and drive into Massachusetts, and an officer asks to see license, registration and proof of insurance, and you are not covered, you will get a ticket for driving without insurance in the state of Massachusetts.

In Las Vegas if you are caught without insurance for a traffic violation will the charge be dropped if you bring proof of insurance to court?

If you can prove you were in compliance at the time you were issued the ticket - but just didn't have the card with you - many judges will dismiss the charge. However, if you did NOT, in fact, have insurance at the time you were stopped and only just got it for the court appearance, probably not.
