I am usually good at this but my car registration expired 6/15 and my son got a ticket tonight while he was driving it.

I have already renewed online, and now I'm not sure what to do.
It's my car but my son got the ticket. Does he go to court and show that
we renewed the registration and see what they do , or can we do something before???

Isn't there any grace period.

Also can the police give an expired registration ticket if it was in a school parking lot???

Go to court with him and explain the situation. Bring proof that it is current and there should be an issue. As for the school parking lot issue, I am not sure what the laws are in NC. In some states that would be considered private property and they can't issue tickets. I wouldn't argue that point though. Just go to court with him and accept responsibility for it.

I agree, go to court with him and bring proof of the new registration. They will throw the ticket out.

What school was it? I'm not totally sure about the law here, but in VA If it was a high school than yes they could give him a ticket, but if it was a college/university than only state funded police could issue the ticket (Campus Police/State Trooper). Not sure if that helps you or not? I will tell you that in 4 years of experience being in L/E that if you go to court and bring in the new registration, then it will most likely be droped. The pain is going to court though...

You may want to be prepared to pay the cost of court. I wonder if a trip to the Courthouse might not keep you out of that loop -- like there is some place, an office, to go to to verify the matter has been handled?

Generally, the school resource officer(s) are city police, or county sheriff's deputies, and quite capable of issuing tickets in a school's parking lot.

Generally what happens for non moving violations like expired registration and expired inspection stickers is that you must show up to court first thing in the morning on your court date. There will be a line with an Asst. DA. S/he will ask to see your ticket and see proof that you have renwed your registration and then throw the ticket out and send you home. You do not usually have to pay court costs because you never actually make into court. It's a pain to have to go down there in the morning and pay for parking etc, but it's worth it. Unless you are a repeat offender, I've never heard of this NOT happening if you get it renewed before the court date.

Show up on the court date (if he got the ticket in person have him do it). Wait in line. get seated. Wait some more. Show the lady your papers (be sure to have registration, license, and insurance). You'll most likeley get excused. All it's gonna cost you is a half day worth of your time. Just did that whole thing a few weeks ago.
