    URGENT! insurance agent needed

    Well what a pickle i'm in.

    To make long story short, i got a VI ticket for my car, and i need to renew my insurance in 2 days (i would fight it if i could, but i couldn't dispute it, only allow to file a complaint against the officer). So my question is, is there away to get around it or am i able to buy temp insurance till the VI is done?

    My rant:

    It is the most BS VI ticket ever!! (front head lights out, rear licence plate light are not stock color, racing peddles, enlarged muffler) I replaced the lights, i didn't have racing peddles to begin with, and got a smaller muffler for my car. I didn't and don't want to pay somebody 80 bux + tax just to check if my lights are ok so thats why I haven't done PVIP yet. ICBC letter says "Confirmation of a Private Vehical Inspection(PVIP) is required for your vehicle before you can renew your insurance." so i guess i'm out of a car for the week if i cant get this sorted out. Not too sure if anybody else got a hard time from that UBC cop, but i wast mouthing off or anything. dont want to play the race card here, but i sense that he doesnt like asians

    chances are you cannot even get a day permit, as the vehicle has been tagged for an inspection.

    suck it up and get the inspection, then the insurance.

    as an idea, maybe stop into a cop shop and ask if they can do the inspection and sign off on it. i doubt they can, or will, but its worth a shot.

    You can get a day permit. I bought a 78 FJ40 Land cruiser some years ago. I had to get it inspected before I could insure it as it was tagged for inspection. Slapped a day permit on her and off I went.

    None right now...
    Mr. Murphy:

    Silly riceboy got busted. As someone pointed out, you can get day insurance, the reason being that you need to drive it somewhere to get inspected.

    I've had my plates taken before on highway 99, so it depends on what 'box' got checked on the ticket. In my case I couldn't get a day permit... mine had to be towed... it sucked.

    Good luck
