He can make a ruling but he hasn’t yet. Get your license reinstated, go back in November and show the court it has been reinstated, and they will likely either dismiss it as corrected or amend it t a lesser, non suspendable offense.

Insurance follows the car, not the person. If there was insurance on the car when you were operating it, the no insurance charge should be dismissed. The failure to produce insurance card will not affect your license or your insurance. The only charge you need to focus on is 26 over bc it is a dispensable offense. If you can get it reduced to 25 or less over, you can go to traffic school and not lose your license or affect your insurance.
