Generally, the police have 30 days from the date of the discovery of the violation to issue a citation. Past case law has indicated that this period does not begin until they receive a copy of the certified driving record. Here, based upon what you have indicated, it does not appear that the officer would have immediately had proof in the form of a driving record to properly issue the citation. The information the officer received was likely from the police dispatcher (who would have had computer access).
Since you do not say how long after the traffic stop the citations were issued, it is difficult to determine whether the citations were issued in a timely fashion. Considering the possible penalties (both in the form of fines and additional periods of license suspension), it would be worth the money to consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney in your area.
