My question involves insurance law for the state of: Washington
My wife was cited for not having valid proof of insurance. The expired paperwork we had in the car was all the same policy information, but we didn't print out the most recent paperwork that showed it was still valid.
For Washington state does she need to respond to say she is contesting it, wait for the trial date, and show the judge our proof of insurance then? Or can she just go right away to the court clerk and show the clerk our paperwork to get it cleared up? Does it depend if the ticket was from city/county/state police? Is a printed PDF from the insurance company sufficient, or does the proof of insurance need to be more official than something I can print at home?
Thanks for any advice.
