Miami, FL asked in Traffic Tickets for Florida

Q: Can I sell a motorcycle that I could a ticket for no registration before the court date.

I was riding my motorcycle unregistered because I’m tight on money and my truck is not drivable right now.

I got stopped and ticketed for it and I’m wondering if I can sell the bike to have more money now and not have issues with the court. I’m hoping it would be okay. Or at least having a bill of sale would cover me.

A: No, when you were ticketed, the bike was not registered, so you are guilty. But if you get it registered before the hearing date, it is possible that the charges could be dropped.
