What Happens If You Drive With Expired Tags

February 22, 2013

It is illegal in Florida to drive with expired registration tags on your vehicle.  If your tags have expired within the last six months, operating a motor vehicle with expired tags is a non-criminal minor traffic infraction.  However, if your tags have been expired for more than six months, you may face stiffer penalties.  A first offense carries the potential of fines and points and a second offense may carry up to sixty days in jail!  While the easy solution
is to renew your tags on time, if you received a citation for expired tags and are not sure what to do, consider speaking to an experience traffic ticket attorney.
