    Default Ticket for Unpaid Registration in California

    My question involves vehicle registration or title in the state of: CA
    My vehicle registration was due the 1st week of December. I was pulled over and cited the 3rd week of December. I went and paid it the same day.

    My question is, isn't code 4000 (A)(1) considered a correctable violation?
    The fine is only $25.00 if the Officer marks it as correctable, $209.00 if not.
    I'm not sure why mine is marked not correctable. I'm wondering if this was a mistake, or if It's worth going to court and asking the Judge to change it? I have no other tickets or accidents. What do you think I should do? Thanks

    It should be marked as correctable unless there's evidence of fraud or persistent neglect, thhe violation presents an immediate safety hazard, or the violator does not agree to, or cannot, promptly correct the violation. CVC 40610.

    If your address is up to date with the DMV, chances are you will receive a "courtesy notice" from the court prior to your court date. In my experience, that notice will indicate how you can correct the violation prior to court even if it was incorrectly NOT marked as "correctable".

    I went to the traffic court and they changed it for me, so I only had to pay the $25.00 fine. I just wanted to say thank you to both of you for taking the time to reply.
