My son got pulled over for speeding and along with the speeding ticket, he got a ticket for expired tags and expired inspection. The car is in my name and with out going into why they were expired, divorce from hell: Can I get car inspected and retagged and go to court alone and hope they reduce the fine amounts or does he have to go with me?
It is the DRIVER's responsibility to ensure the car is legal to drive
You should get the correctable part of the citation corrected.
Then, he should deal with the citation himself.
He should go to the court in person, show proof of correction if possible, before the deadline on the citation.
You can get the proof of correction for him, but you cannot take care of his citation for him.
