    Default Can You Lose Your License for Driving With Expired Plates

    My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: IN
    Can i lose my license for not paying an expired plates ticket? Also what does “An Electronic SR16 has been sent to the BMV
    FTA SR16 sent to BMV for Charge 1 for Statute 9-18.1-11-2” mean?

    You WILL lose your license for failure to pay a ticket. The SR-16 is sort of a dual whammy. It's the way the court notifies the BMV that either you failed to pay/appear or that you've subsequently have cleared it. If you've not paid (or otherwise dealt with) the ticket, the SR-16 is certainly telling them that your license should be suspended.

    9-18.1-11-2 is the rule that says you have to renew your plates.

    My guess is your license is well on its way (if not already) to being suspended.

    You should go to the court and pay/do what they want to clear the issue. See if they will transmit or give you to hand carry an SR-16 to that effect and then go to the BMV and reinstate yourself.

    What if the the plates have been renewed? Can you still lose the lisence? The ticket was not paid. And it was a FTA.

    If they were expired when you were charged it makes no difference.

    Had you renewed the plates and gone to court rather than failing to appear as promised and required, you might have dodged some of the penalties. At this point is too late. You need to pay the fines and penalties and likely the pound of flesh to the BMV to reinstate.
