This hurdle creates an almost insurmountable barrier to getting back on the straight and narrow. To complicate the matters in Pennsylvania, the majority of the non-driving related violations do not allow access to the one program created by our government to prevent this - [Read more...]

    Getting Credit for Time Served

    When you have your license suspended it can be devastating. In an instant you may be faced with finding rides and having trouble just getting to work. To add to your problems, a little known rule prevents PennDOT from giving credit toward a license suspension until you take another step. You don’t have to suffer through the extra suspension time. Just call or email and we will fix this to get you driving again. As a Pennsylvania resident you are required to acknowledge your suspension by surrendering your valid driver’s license or a specific acknowledgement form (DL-16) § 1540.  Surrender of license.

    A new agreement to allow Taiwan residents who hold a valid Taiwanese driver's license to exchange their license for a valid Pennsylvania driver's license has just been reached.

    Your Restoration Letter & Act 122 Release

    Your Restoration Letter & Act 122 Release
