What are the consequences for driving without registration in R.I. for first time offense?
Thanks in advance!

This is not a criminal offense. The usual penalty, in addition to the possibility of having your car towed and impounded for being unregistered, is a fine in Traffic Court. However, most of the time, getting the car registered and inspected before your court date will convince the prosecutor to dismiss the citation, although that's not guaranteed.
