    Default Suspended License, No Insurance

    My question involves a driver's license issued by the State of: Washington

    I was pulled over by a police officer for allegedly speeding. He checked my record, came back and asked me if I was aware that my license was suspended, to which I replied no. He then proceeded to give me a speeding ticket, and a second ticket. This is how he explained the second yellow ticket: "Since your license is suspended, technically you don't have insurance." And he gave me a ticket for no insurance.
    To me it doesn't make much sense. I do have a lawyer working on my case, but he is not saying anything straight forward, and I guess I just want that peace of mind. Any experts on here, what is your advice? Is this a legitimate ticket or not quite?

    Hypothetical: If you were to call your insurer and ask them "my license is suspended, am I still covered and am insured if I drive?"

    My guess the answer will be "no"!

    I was driving a relative's car, which DID have insurance coverage. Then does this mean that 'hypothetically' he could have given me a no insurance ticket even if my license was not suspended, since I myself wouldn't be insured either way?...

    their insurance most likely covers any licensed driver they allow to drive their vehicle. It likely does not cover non-licensed drivers.

    You put your relative in a world of jeopardy by doing what you have. Don't know about Washington but in at least one state, if they knew of the no license, they also committed a crime.

    Driving with a suspended license is a misdemeanor; You were fortunate he didn't take you in.
