What do I do if I forgot to show the officer proof of insurance when I was cited?

You may bring in proof of insurance when you come to pay your ticket or appear for court.  You may also send in the proof with your check or money order if you are paying your citation by mail or dropbox.  The insurance must cover the date and time of the stop of the vehicle you were driving. (If you were driving someone else’s vehicle, you must get a copy of their insurance, not your personal insurance unless you have a SR-22)  The Clerk’s office will accept the insurance ID card or declarations page from the insurance company, but will not accept a billing statement as proof.  If you do not have proof of insurance for the vehicle you were driving when you pay your fine, the BMV will notify you that you must provide them proof with instructions on how to do so.  Make sure the BMV has your current address.
