No telling what the cops mood is when you get pulled over!!!
Just drive like an adult and you won't get pulled over.

Just as cocothebean said. Do not speed, run red lights obey the law.
If you don't you could get a ticket for the infraction plus a ticket for driving with out a license.

Just be truthful with the officer, he can call in your information and verify you have a valid drivers license.

Correction he has a license :P He would just get a ticket for not having it on him. So the officer would just tell him here is a ticket for not having your license on ya. Come down to the police station within 24 hours and we can waive it. At least that is the procedure here. If he was actually driving without a license his car would be towed.

This is a good idea but you can still be ticketed for not carrying a valid drivers license.

Not true in all states. here in Ma and will get a ticket for driving without a drivers license. There no taking a license in and getting it waived.

Re: If you forget 2take ur drivers license and u get pulled over

Here you (PA) you give your birthdate, age, full name, and whatever other info you can give them and it is usually fine.

However, it is illegal to drive without it.
In PA the worst that I have seen is they give you a white card that is a warning.

Technically, they could give you a small ticket.

Overall though, I would not worry about it unless you are driving in France or something.

Blame it on wife/gf... say you left it in her purse last night... Be calm, don't make a scene, the cop can and will verify your info.. depending on how good the donut was you may even get away with a verbal warning.

First of all, everyone here should know by now NOT to quote laws to the OP when they reside in a different state. Laws vary by state, so what may be illegal in one state, may not be in another. All you are doing is giving bad advice.

Second, I've done this before. What got the officer to let me off scott-free was the fact that I memorized my license number. He looked it up in the computer, saw that everything in the computer for my license matched my description and other information (address, birthdate, the fact that I have a Class A w/ doubles and triples), and he figured there's no way I could've been lying.

So while I agree that it DOES depend on the officer's mood and that if it's a bad mood, you probably CAN be ticketed for one thing or another, it will certainly help if you memorize the information on your license. Oh, and kiss some ass, too, as much as I hate doing that. The better an officer's ass feels, the less likely he is to write a ticket.

There comes a point in your life when you get tired of fixing everything and wiping everyone's ass. But it’s not giving up. It’s realizing that you don’t need certain people and the bullshit and drama they bring to your life.

Re: If you forget 2take ur drivers license and u get pulled over

It really depends on, where you are, what you did to get stopped, and the mood of the officer. I was in an accident once running to get lunch, just after doing some yard work. Left mine at home, and the officer could not have cared less. I gave him the number and he verified it, but he really didn't care I did not have it. I was lucky!! I really should have gotten a ticket for not having it with me!

Got your DL # memoried? This happened to me, trifecta. Was pulled over @ 12:30 AM, in Downtown Chicago, By a Captain. Sheeeesh, I told him I forgot my license at my GF's house which was true, asked what I was doing out so late, told him I just left, was "studing" and was headed home. OF course gave all nfo, including my DL # which he was impressed since most can't recall it. He looked up my record. Came back and said go straight home and try not to forget my license next time I am studying.

One guy I knew in high school claimed he had to do community service. Another time I was with a friend who didn't even realise he didn't have his license when he was pulled over for having a tale light out. The officer looked up his information and made him promise he would locate his license when he got home. Someone else drove us to his house.

I'm glad you put the last word in your message. I wasn't quite sure to make of the word "studing". You either forgot the D or the Y. I couldn't tell . . .

Most of the time the cop will let you go, worse case is a written warning. I've been stopped many time in IL without my license, have a habit of leaving home without my wallet, and never was I given a ticket. I also know my license number as well as social security number. How can you not remember those 2 numbers? I give them those, a check is done in their computer and they let me go.

Even If you get a ticket, it will most likely be dismissed if you show proof of a license, registration and insurance at the courthouse. "Driving without a license" is not the same as "Driving without proof of a license", the latter of which is the only thing you're guilty of.

It's not very likely that you'll get pulled over either. I've had this happen to me a couple of times.

This happened to me, twice.

All I had to do was go to traffic court and show the DA (or Assistant DA) my license and it was dismissed. You have to deal with the courthouse and all the low-life people who are there, but you don't need a lawyer and there aren't any court fees or penalties.

This is in North Carolina of course.

Here is what you do:

Officah, I forgot my license at home. If I buy you a dozen donuts will you let me go with just a warning? I promise I will buy stock in the local donut shop as soon as I get home and find my wallet. No I am not making fun of you, you look natural with that donut in your hand. The powdered sugar on your shirt is really a redeeming quality. Keep kicking those donuts back and you won't need a PFD when you go boating..

Everything will work out fine if you followed those steps..
