    Default Is Driving Without License Plates a Moving Violation, VC Code 5200(A)

    My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: California

    I was given a ticket today for having no plates on my car. The officer listed it under traffic (moving violation), but I'm not sure if that is correct. I believe all moving violations result in a point being put on your license as well? Can anyone shed some light if on this situation...

    - Can a 5200(a) violation be a traffic/ moving violation
    - What will be the result? Just roughly $200 fee, or will it include a point on my license too?

    Thank you for your help.

    If you care why. #1) I'm dumb. #2) I was taking advantage of the new car license plate so I don't have to pay fasTRAK.

    Default Re: Code 5200(A)- No Plates; Listed As a Moving Violation

    Is 5200(a) what is written on the citation? Because 5200(a) simply says where they how they must be displayed.

    5200(a) is $197 AND zero points no matter what else is written on your ticket.

    It may be written as a correctable violation (and the court is free to consider it correctable even if not so marked). In that case if you do get your plates in place, then you take proof of that to court and pay $25 rather than $197.
