What will happen ifI let my SR22 bond lapse?

I received a speeding ticket today. My SR22 bond lapsed in May and I am driving a car owned by my father. He has insurance on it. I got a speeding ticket today and it showed that my license was suspended because of the lapse in the SR22 bond. If I get insurance and the bond reinstated before the court hearing, will I still get in trouble for no insurance?

Although it is a good idea for you to reapply and refile the SR22 for yourself, it will not help that you had the insurance after the date of the ticket.  What the Court wants to see is that you were insured on the date of the ticket when they are dealing with the ticket itself.  But it will show that you have gotten the insurance immediately upon your realizing that the insurance had lapsed (that is what you will be advising the court although truthfully knowledge of it lapsing will be imputed to you regardless).  When you say that your Dad has coverage on the car what do you mean?  What type of coverage?  Does it cover you as well?  I would consult with an attorney in the area and bring the insurance information - new, old and everyones - with you.  Good luck.
