Question

What happens if I get a ticket a few hours before getting insurance?

If I get car insurance online same day of a ticket but after I get stopped with no insurance. If I show it in court will they know I got it after I got stopped? Can I get away with getting it the same day only after the ticket was given?

No, if you get insurance the same day as the ticket, it will not cover the ticket. Since both the ticket and the insurance policy are time-stamped, the DMV would see that at the time of the ticket your policy was not active. Good luck and if you have any other questions, don't hesitate to ask.
