Hi there, Sorry about your ticket. I'm afraid getting your license after the fact won't change the nature of the infraction. It probably won't influence the decision, except maybe to show good faith - that you were on the right track when you received the citation. Good luck!

You were driving without a license. You have one now - good for you, but you can't stuff the genie back in the bottle. It's up to the judge now.

theyre not stupid, your license will have an issue date, just because you have your license now doesnt mean that they should be lenient when you got caught driving with only a permit. the fact that you got it after the incident makes it irrelevant for your hearing. Youre gonna get fined.

Enjoy your license while you can, you may end up giving it to the judge. Hopefully all you have to do is pay the fine though. Don't expect it to be reduced.

No, you were not only driving unlicensed but can expect to have driving without insurance added to your ticket/fine. Insurance is not valid with an unlicensed driver behind the wheel. You are probably also looking at a license suspension and subsequent reinstatement fees and higher insurance rates for risky behavior.

I'm going to bet you were driving with your permit, but didn't have a licensed driver of the correct age with you monitoring your driving, right? So when he stopped you with full intent to just give you a warning to turn on your lights, he found you were driving without a license (your permit isn't valid unless you do have someone with after all). So now it depends on the judge. You having a license now doesn't go back to last month when you were caught driving without one. The judge could decide you are wonderful for getting your license, and tell you to go and don't break any more laws. Or he could fine you $401 plus court costs, a revoke your license for 6 months, or something in between those two extremes. You'll know after court. Dress nice and be polite in court.
