Doesn’t it seem like every time you pay a bill another more expensive one comes in the mail? Such is life. One bill you get in the mail every year as a Sarasota driver is the renewal fees associated with your vehicle registration. And that is one bill you do not want to ignore!
Expired vehicle registration and no vehicle registration at all are the two big issues that we see individuals in Sarasota dealing with on a regular basis. Although this may seem more like an administrative chore than anything else, if you drive with expired vehicle registration in Sarasota or did not bother to register your car at all, you could be facing potential jail time for this offense.
Here’s a quick look at some of the penalties associated with driving with expired vehicle registration in Sarasota:
- If it has been less than six months since your registration expired and this has not happened to you before, you will receive a moving violation (noncriminal in nature). This is the state’s way of being nice to you and giving you a chance to make this obligation up. Of course you are still responsible for any tickets you received for an having expired registration and it is likely that the fees to renew your registration went up as well.
