Fail To Surrender Insurance Card

I've received a ticket for the above, i purchased a vehicle from a dealership and traded in my previous vehicle. I picked up the new vehicle and forgot to transfer over the insurance to the new vehicle.

The officer told me that he believed i did have insurance and gave me a ticket for Fail to Surrender Insurance Card.

From what i understand in this case, it would appear to the court that i did not have valid insurance for the vehicle i was driving. Is there some sort of 24 grace period in transferring over the insurance from my previous vehicle to the new one i just picked up?

I was pulled over less than 30 minutes after picking up the vehicle and still had all my documents from the purchase.

Any advice would be great! thanks in advance.

Contact your insurance agent. When you trade in a vehicle, some providers will extend your coverage to the new vehicle for a limited amount of days automatically.
