Correctable ViolationsIf you were issued a citation for violation of:
- 5200 - 5202, missing or improperly displayed license plates
- 5204, missing, expired or improperly displayed registration tabs
- 4000(A), unregistered vehicle
you must provide valid proof of correction with your citation or notice.
Valid proof of correction can be obtained at the DMV, CHP, or the Marshal's Inspection Office.
Your violation will be reduced to $10.00 when you mail in your valid proof of correction and citation or notice within 21 calendar days of the issue date of your citation or 14 calendar days of the mailing date of your reminder notice.
NOTE: Any fees paid at the DMV, CHP, or the Marshal's Inspection Office do not include the $10.00 reduced fine. Again this must be mailed in with your valid proof of correction, and citation or reminder notice.
Please note that a photocopy of your registration will not be recognized as proof of correction.
