Can an officer search my vehicle without permission?

Return to FAQ Videos

An officer cannot search your car without a warrant unless you give permission to an officer to search your vehicle. However, there are certain exceptions to this rule. An example, if an officer pulls you over and issues you a citation for running the red light but then smells marijuana in your vehicle an officer is entitled to search your vehicle.
