Columbus, GA asked in Traffic Tickets for Georgia

Q: Why was my license still suspended?

I got a ticket because my registration was revoked due to lapse of insurance. I got my car insured, got my tag and registration fixed after paying all fines through the DDS. I paid my ticket before my court date and received a letter saying my license was suspended because of my ticket. I thought I was all squared away after paying all fines and the ticket. I can not get my license until June, I have to take a 6 hour defensive driving class and pay $200 to get my license back. I just don’t understand how this happened after paying everything and receiving my new tag as well as getting my registration fixed and the local tag office

A: If you plead guilty (by paying the ticket) to driving on suspended registration it triggers a 6 month suspension of your drivers license. You need to contact a Georgia traffic attorney to see if you can withdraw your guilty plea and try to negotiate a plea to a different offense.
