  • not having registration in car

    hello all, I notice when I watch cop related TV shows the LEO always ask for DL, prof of insurance and registration. I live in MN and I never been asked for the registration. I asked a LEO on this and he said we have computers in our cars and we already know before we walk up to car if your registration is up to date. does this mean the states that cops ask this do not have up to date info if the registration is up to date

      NOPE.

      The law STILL requires that you carry proof of registration. It really doesn't matter what the computer states............you are required to have the slip in the your car. If you dont' have it with you it CAN be a citation
      Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

      My new word for the day is FOCUS, when someone irritates you tell them to FOCUS

        I carry one, but they also require one on the windshield next to the inspection date. Do they use both to verify? Ive never been pulled over in 11 years of driving. So honestly curious.

      I sure laws are different in each state but to be safe I can keep it the safe I have in rear of our SUV

        That's just something that's good to keep with you. I don't normally ask for it unless there was a discrepancy in GCIC/NCIC.


        For example: I've had situations were insurance companies got the VIN wrong. Without a copy of the registration and insurance card I wouldn't be able to verify that. All I would know is the registration was suspended for no valid insurance.

        I've also heard of the tag offices getting the VINs wrong. Very rare for it to happen but it has happened.

          In IL you aren't required to have it on you. It varies by state.

          ​​​​​​I might ask for it if there's an issue getting the car's info back, like specialty out of state plates.

            I drove a pickup for 5 yrs before I noticed the VIN was wrong on my insurance card....................

            I renewed my license plates a couple years ago and the DMV said I needed new plates Then sent me wrong plates for the vehicle. The plate was 1 letter off the real registration (Ham Radio call sign )

              Here they would have suspended your registration. Probably wouldn't know it until you drive by an officer with a license plate reader.

              Most of the suspended registrations I've seen had to do with insurance. People not paying their insurance, cancelling the insurance while their vehicle is in the shop or changing insurance companies multiple times. Other times it's for no paying a ~$25 fee at the tag office.

              In Iowa insurance is not connected to registration so the DMV would have no idea if something is wrong

            In NJ, the driver must produce their license, registration and insurance card (paper or electronic document) upon request. Failure to do so carries a fine of $150 for EACH violation (plus court costs).

            I can (and will) look up all the info before I approach the vehicle, but I always ask to see the documents even if everything checks out. I've rarely cited someone for failure to produce...UNLESS they're particularly argumentative a-holes...in which case I'm happy to add $450 worth of tickets to their $95 speeding ticket. (FYI, they have the option of producing the documents in court, and if they don't give the judge an attitude he'll typically reduce the fine or only make them pay court costs).

              That's what happens in Iowa too

              Court costs for traffic violations are $60

                I do recall the police computer info was wrong it came back as a different model chevy but I did have the registration and had the title showing the VIN number.
