What Is Driving An Unregistered Vehicle?
When police stop you for a traffic violation, they typically ask to see your driver's license and the vehicle's registration. If your driver's license says Arizona and your vehicle is not currently registered in Arizona, you could be ticketed for driving an unregistered vehicle. If your vehicle is registered in another state when it should be registered in Arizona, you could be charged with a criminal violation.
Criminal violations typically occur when a person moves to Arizona with a vehicle that is registered in another state. If the vehicle has several months left on the registration in the other state, the driver may put off registering the vehicle in Arizona. Unfortunately, this can have serious consequences. Commercial drivers can also face these charges when their truck is registered in another state.
