I got pulled over going 10 over and they told me my License has been suspended since early 2018. I had no idea!? I have been pulled over only one other time last Halloween I got a speeding ticket I paid it, I thought it was on time as far as I knew and then when I went to get my tags at the linn county courthouse they told me I had something blocking my account and I also had no idea of this and they gave me a number to call to find out.. they said I had a late fee for a speeding ticket to pay $80 extra so I did and then I went back to the courthouse they were able to let me get my tags and I updated my address at this time why would they sell me tags without having a valid license?? Or why couldn’t they have informed me? I called the DOT and apparently it’s been suspended ever since the late fee was applied in March. So anyways the cop wrote me a speeding ticket and a ticket for my suspended license.. am I able to fight this in court? Or is it just my bad for not updating my address in time? I was staying a lot of different places and didnt have a main residence for a good year or so. Please help! I’m broke and I would never had purposely done this to myself :( #NeverSpeedingAgain
The DOT would have sent a notice of suspension to the address shown on your driver's license. If you were staying a lot of difference places and didn't forward your mail, you wouldn't have received the notice. You acknowledge that you were driving on a suspended license, so you don't have a defense.
