Failure to surrendor insurance and valid permit

Hi,

I was stopped for speeding last week and in the process realized I had an expired insurance card and also didn't have the sticker that is suppose to be applied on the back of your permit. My car is a company car so it is insured and I had the sticker on my plate, just not on the back of the permit. I got a ticket for both offences (however, he let me go with a warning on the speeing ticket).

He told me to book a court date - if I go to court, do I just have to bring my insurance card and permit (which my company has sent to me now) and will the charges be let go? Do I book the court date as wanted to plea 'not guilty' or 'guity with explination?

Thanks!

You would want to plead not guilty and speak with the Crown prior to trial to try and work out a deal. There is no guarantee they will simply withdraw the charges, more likely they will withdraw one charge and/or offer a reduced fine.

That is called first attendence and usually you can request it when you get your trial notice. I believe you can call the local court and request it, but i could be wrong on that. You can always talk to the crown right before the trial as well.
