Thank you for your question. I lookforward to working with you to provide you the information you areseeking for educational purposes only. If you had an expired tag when stopped, then you were still in violation of the law. However, if you immediately corrected the violation and bring proof to the court, depending on the prosecutor, most times they will agree to dismiss the citation or at the very least reduce the fine. However, to do that you need to plead not guilty and go to court and then ask to conference with the prosecutor and show them proof of the new registration and ask them to dismiss or reduce the fine. It is not automatic that it will be dismissed, but many times the prosecutor/court will do so.
