I got a ticket for Failure to Change Address today. Can i get my address changed on my license and get this dismissed?

Lake Worth, FL |

I was wondering if i get my license changed with a updated address and take it to the clerks office will they drop the fine? Or do you have to pay the fine no matter what you do? The fine is 116.00 is a little much for not changing your address.

If you update your license it is NOT a defense allowing you to dismiss the charge. That said, some judges might dismiss it. You should talk to an attorney and they can make the appropriate motion to dismiss. Although it may cost a little bit now, it will save you in the long run as far as insurance goes so it will be well worth it.
