Driving 49cc scooter , no plates , licence , no insurance

Unread post by killa on

I was driving 50cc scooter near my appartment house with out registration ,licence and insurance. Reason is I just decided to buy a cheap scooter on weekends and register it and get my licence on Monday. On Saturday, I was jpractesing by riding around the parking lot .I got pull over for not having my scooter without licence plates and I got 3 green tickets and 1 yellow( invintation to the court or summon) I'm 17 , and it was my first day of riding this scooter. I have no idea what to do , I was only driving around the parking lot and then I decided to park my scooter in front of my appartment building and while I was crossing the road ,cops caught me. Eventually I have 3 tickets on 760$ and summon on April. What should I do or how I can get excused for driving around the parking lot???Just got in a wrong place at the wrong time .

These are all very serious charges, you should seek legal counsel immediately.

Your charges stem from using your scooter to cut across roads, which you kind of glossed over.

You need at the very least a M-Class license with a limited speed restriction. M with no restrictions would be even better. You need your plate (green limited speed), insurance, helmet, etc.

While harsh, the officer has every right to lay these charges on you. I'm going to assume the officer saw something he really didn't like to want to send this kind of message. Then again, I could be wrong.

You should probably find some representation. You're really going to need it. That $750 you're worried about now is going to look like chump change after all is said and done. Good luck.

They wrote my ticket on my G2 driver's licence. Would that be possible if they gonna transfer all tickets on my new M1 licence ? or it's not making many difference. I don't want my car insurance raise due to unregistered scooter driving and no insurance on it

It will not make a difference on your licence record; you only get ONE and it lists the different types of vehicles you are allowed to operate.

As stated already: your best outcome is going to be if you hire someone.

Ok , I will hire the laywer, but how low they can drop the monetary penalty, considering that It was my first day of buying this scooter and it was within 80 meters to my house. I was just practice I didn't intend to drive on roads without insurance

Not sure how low they can go with it. That depends on the JP you get, or the deal you strike with the Prosecutor, etc. I'm not sure you need a lawyer, but definitely a paralegal. If you do get a lawyer, make doubly sure he/she specializes in traffic offences. If you show that in the mean time you've registered, insured and plated the vehicle, etc., they may have some leniency.

yeah , thank you , everyone. I'm just f****. Even officer told me that I'm f*****. I will talk to paralegal on Monday. I'm planning to tell them that it was my first experience, I'm young , unemployed, going to the University, don't want to financialy struggle due to severe punishment. I would rather ask them to suspend my licence forever than paying off 6,250 for ticket. I just destoyed my future.

Be careful what you wish for. Suspended license and 3 tickets will take 5 years to clear up (i could be wrong but 3 years for tickets and 5 years for a suspended license under an insurance's eyes). I believe with a G2 your license will be suspended as you fall under the novice license category.

Your best bet is you should have done your research before driving that scooter. It doesn't matter if it's 10 or 20m away from your home. The moment you let that vehicle on public road, it must have all proper documents or else it's deems illegal.

Today I got everything regested , insured and plated on my name. I'm really hoping that the judge will understand my case. I will try to reduce ticket to a minimum fine or trial for lower ticket. I got everything insured within 3 days! Seems like I will have to ask for a credit as soon as I will turn 18 , I don't have a parents here.

Tickets/points may clear up in the eyes of the law, but insurance wants your driving history over the past 5 years.
