License Restoration in Pennsylvania
You can lose your driving privileges in a number of ways. License suspension commonly accompanies conviction on driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol (DUI). If you receive notice of suspension, an experienced attorney can help.
Our law firm in Reading has successfully handled suspension matters for over 30 years. We know how to help. A notice of suspension triggers the following actions:
- Filing of written appeal of the suspension: Serving the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) with notice to appeal a suspension is important. We prepare your appeal and usually obtain notice from PennDOT of continuation of your driving privileges pending administrative response.
- Cure underlying cause of suspension: Some drivers receive notice of suspension owing to long-unpaid traffic fines or other irregularities. Resolving these issues and paying fines and fees may result in termination of suspension proceedings.
- Review of temporary license programs: For drivers with suspended driving privileges, PennDOT offers options for those who drive for employment, education, or medical purposes. The term for these is bread and butter licenses, and includes Occupational Limited Licenses[H1] (OLL) and Probationary Licenses[H2] (PL). We help you understand the limited eligibility and requirements of each type of temporary license.
Once suspended, license restoration in Pennsylvania is not straightforward. Specific restoration requirements for each driver are provided through individual correspondence from PennDOT.
