NJ Driving Without Vehicle Registration
In New Jersey, every driver is required to have appropriate documents that show they are eligibility to drive. The law also requires that vehicles be legally operable on the roads by having appropriate registration and plates. This also enables vehicle tracking. Consequently, if you are pulled over and you do not have proper vehicle registration or plates, you risk charges that could include losing your driving privileges. Driving without registration in New Jersey is governed by statute 39:3-29 which addresses failure to produce registration, license, or insurance card. That is, you must provide a valid vehicle’s registration certificate, your driver’s license, and your insurance identification card when requested. Failure to do this is a violation that can result in fines or a date in court. This means you must always have your registration certificate, insurance identification card, and driver’s license at all times when operating a motor vehicle.
The traffic officer is required to determine your identity as well as the accuracy of the registration certificate presented while paying attention to the number plates and the registration number of the motor vehicle to which the documents belong. The accuracy of the insurance policy is also ascertained to prove that it is related to the motor vehicle that was issued.
