Officer said I did not have to go to court if I plead guilty and would pay fine. It was September 10. I went to mail in payment on September 29 but realized it said I had to pay by the court date which was September 24th. Went online and paid the late fee $45 (total paid $175) but I still need to show my correct insurance card? will I need to go to court now?

Yes, you will still need to go to Court to prove that you have a current insurance card. THIS IS NOT LEGAL ADVICE! YOU NEED TO SPEAK TO AN ATTORNEY WHO IS LICENSED IN YOUR STATE FOR LEGAL ADVICE. This is merely suggestions for you to think about in discussing your situation with the local attorney.

You do not need to go to court. Once the BMV receives confirmation of the conviction, and that no insurance was shown at the time of the stop, a suspension will be issued and you will get a written notice from the BMV indicating when the suspension will go into effect.
To avoid the suspension, and the fees associated with it, go to your local BMV office and bring proof of insurance for the date of that ticket and the suspension and associated fees will be cancelled.
