Driving Under a Suspended License In Pennsylvania – The Penalties.
Not having a license is a tremendous burden, making it impossible to get to work or run a family. Not to mention, emergency situations arise. It is especially difficult to not be able to drive in rural areas or in the Pittsburgh region, where public transportation is nearly nonexistent.
If you have been arrested or charged with driving while your license was suspended, cancelled or revoked, you may have had what you thought was a very good reason for doing so. However, the police officer and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania may not see it that way.
Automatic penalties in Pennsylvania include a $200 fine and an added year or two of license suspension for a first time offense. For a second offense you can be fined up to $1,000 and six months in jail. If you are caught while driving with a license suspension because of a DUI, you face even harsher penalties, including a sixty-day jail sentence.
At Shrager Defense Attorneys, we realize that having a driver’s license is critical to most people’s lives. That is why we work hard to fight for your rights and your freedom to operate a motor vehicle. We will aggressively push toward getting your license back.

Whether your license was suspended or revoked due to accumulated points on your license, traffic violations or DUI, or because of a medical condition or dementia, we will help you understand your rights and develop a legal strategy to have your license reinstated or your penalties reduced.
We will also fight to get points removed from your license from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) . We are very familiar with PennDOT’s procedures and administrative process and can help you make an appeal to get your license back.
Even if you have not been charged with driving under a suspended license, but have already had your license suspended or think you are at risk of having it revoked, you should contact an experienced PA Traffic Violations Attorney immediately to help have your license reinstated and avoid ever being caught while driving on a suspended license.
Attorney David J. Shrager is available 24/7 – you can call or text him on his
personal cell phone anytime – 412-969-2540.
If getting your driver’s license restored or reinstated is not possible, our experienced attorneys will fight for you to at least have an occupational driver’s license or find other available alternatives. Occupational Limited Licenses are issued by PennDOT under certain circumstances, but the process can be somewhat confusing and an experienced attorney will help you to better understand the process of applying. Read the Occupational Limited License Fact Sheet.
