Call for a FREE Case Review with a Connecticut Traffic Ticket Attorney
Annually-renewed auto registration is required for Connecticut drivers to legally operate their vehicles. If you are caught driving without valid vehicle registration by the Connecticut State Police, you can face a fine of between $150 and $300 and a potential suspension of your driver’s license. You may even have your vehicle impounded until you can show valid registration.
If you have been pulled over and cited for driving an unregistered vehicle, don’t pay your ticket without consulting an experienced traffic ticket defense attorney at The Sills Law Firm. We serve clients throughout Connecticut from six convenient office locations in Hartford, Waterbury and Westport.
