If you have any buddies, you might be able to backdate it. Also some insurance companies can backdate it for u if you sign a statement stating that there were no previous losses what so ever. U can try it that way to get out of it as maybe a correctional violation. Good luck!
I still don't know about it. I'm new here. That's why. lol
Backdating sounds like a good idea. But is it possible to do so?

In most states they will drop the fine waaaay down if you get insurance before the court date. I would do it ASAP. You should walk out of there with a greatly reduced fine or if the judge is feeling really good he might toss it out altogether.

I am an International student as well and don't have a US license. I use state farm as my insurance and they don't need a US license go to an agent rather than over the phone. Hope this helps.

If you don't mind me asking, how much is your monthly payment? What was covered? I'm just trying to compare quotes...

Oh, i forgot to ask about the process of going to court. This is my first time, so i don't know anything. How long does it take from start to finish? Can somebody explain the process of going to court please?
Thanks

Never drive without insurance. I hate to be hard on you, but being an international student is irrelevant. Uninsured and under-insured driver is a big part of what makes auto insurance expense for those of us to do have insurance.

Just think of the $550 as the deducible for that accident you did not have while uninsured. Even if you are so rich that you don't need collision and comprehensive, you need liability coverage to be legal and be a responsible member of the road going public.

OK, end of lecture. Like others have said, having insurance in effect when you go to court can only help. Good luck, but please don't do this again.

Oh yeah, being a foreign national, you can ask your country's consulate or embassy for help if you think you need it (you have a right to this under U.S. law). Otherwise, get an attorney. While that adds to your expenses, he/she will say the right things in court and will generally improve you overall chances of getting a reduced fine (and no jail time) regardless of the situation.

I guess every state is different in how they handle traffic violations, but here if you get insurance before the court date they will drop it 100%, you pay nothing. If you don't then you have problems. There is a ton of these cases every day here for Mexicans that do not have insurance. (Literally about 20-30 a day no joke). They are so bombarded that I guess they just decide to drop it. Not sure why they don't charge a fine up front.
