I was recently pull over by police they ran my license plate and they detained me and searched my car. Since I had nothing illegal they let me go. I currently dont have a drivers license. But the officer gave me a break and let me go. Since i was cooperative. Do I have to notify probation police made contact with me but did not cite me or anything. I was driving without a drivers license. And I am in informal probation. I don't have a probation officer to check in with. All I do is send a payment to the Revenue and Recovery.
Hello San Diego. In my 20 years experience in San Diego County, usually only FORMAL (felony) Probation requires that you notify the probation officer of any contact with law enforcement within 72 hours of that contact. Informal probation, if considered probation to the court, thus there's nobody to notify. IF any new charges are filed, the court will know that you are also on probation. Get a driver's license without further delay and/or figure out what you need to do to get one. Best of luck.

Since you were stopped and not cited nor arrested, you do not need to report the matter to probation. Get yourself a drivers license or you may find yourself facing another charge in the future that could also turn into a probation violation.
There is really nothing to report. Get your license!

Agree with above; I don't think there is anything to report. I'll add that you caught a lucky break. My suspicion is that the officers did not find your probation status. Otherwise, the fact that you were driving without a valid license could be grounds for revoking your probation. Either way, don't chance it going forward.
