    Default Vehicle Registration & Insurance

    I was recently pulled over in California and cited for unregistered and uninsured vehicle. The car is is not in working condition now and I cannot get it registered due to SMOG. If I change it to non-op will it correct the registration part of the ticket so that I then only have to deal with the insurance side?

    Default Re: Vehicle Registration & Insurance

    I don't think so. A car doesn't have to be registered; it only has to be registered if you drive it; the NON-OP deal just gives you the opportunity to register it at a future date without incurring a penalty. Also, if the car doesn't work now....and you're not driving, you don't need insurance, either.

    Neither has anything to do with the fact that you were cited for operating an unregistered car without insurance. You can expect to be fined for both.
