Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.
I understand that your insurance had lapsed, but the only way to get the registration reinstated is to prove that the insurance has been reinstated and go to court to argue that the non-payment was an oversight and not intentional. I am afraid that there is no legal exception for anyone who intentionally does not have insurance because not having insurance impacts everyone else on the road and if you or your wife were in an accident without insurance then who would bear the burden of paying for the damages if you were liable for causing them? The only thing you can do I am afraid is prove insurance has been paid and appeal for an early termination of the vehicle suspension and most judges are understanding enough to do so, but they will not release the registration without proof of current insurance I am afraid.
