Driving Without Valid Registration
Knowingly driving a vehicle, for which the registration is expired, suspended, cancelled or revoked, is a violation of Georgia Motor Vehicle and Traffic Code. Law enforcement will crack down hard upon a driver who is found to be driving without registration. These charges may be difficult to defend in criminal court due to the fact that physical evidence may be present in abundance – that the driver was driving a vehicle which did not have proper registration. However, the intent of the driver may play a factor and your defense lawyer may be able to use this in your favor.
