Drivers License Suspensions

Many Pennsylvania drivers do not know that you have certain rights if your license is suspended. You may not be aware that in Pennsylvania you have the right to apply for a limited “work” license called either an Occupational License, OLL for short, or a Probationary License, called PL for short or the NEW Ignition Interlock Limited License for anyone facing DUI suspension.  These limited license types allow you to remain working and continue to earn a living or further your education by continuing to attend school or taking care of medical issues. So, under some conditions, you may be eligible to drive legally, with a limited license, even though you have a driver’s license suspension.

Extensive Driving Records

The Suspension Snowball effect often leads to increased sanctions and issues that compound with time. We’ve developed multiple action plans to unravel an extensive driving record and fight to get your license clear. You also may have the right to appeal convictions that resulted in driver’s license suspension, even if the convictions occurred many years ago. Those late appeals are called Nunc Pro Tunc appeals, and in the right situation can help to remove years of suspension time from your driving record.

Our record review can result in finding errors that may have added years of suspension, and our team can fix these to remove the suspension time. Even a small mistake on your driving record can add many years of un-necessary suspension to your license.

Administrative Hearings

Pennsylvania drivers with a license suspension may also have their records reviewed and corrected by the Department of Transportation through Administrative Hearings . The administrative hearing is tricky with particular guidelines that can result in the restoration of your driving privilege when done properly. Our team has years of experience handling these matters, and we know what it takes to win your Administrative Hearing.

Non-Pennsylvania Residents

Some out-of-state drivers are discovering that your home state drivers licenses are being suspended or recalled because of suspensions or old tickets in Pennsylvania.  There could be  NDR (National Driver Registry) notations of suspension for those out-of-state violations. Getting these suspension holds removed from your record to allow your out-of-state driver’s license to be restored in your home state is complex because your home state will need to retrieve the clearance notice from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.

  • Several recent clients we have helped encountered some issues out of state. For example, a former Pennsylvania resident now living in Virginia could not secure a Virginia license because his Pennsylvania driving privileges were suspended as a result of convictions for traffic violations from years earlier. We were able to have this client’s suspensions overturned and record corrected. His Pennsylvania privileges were restored, and he was able to secure a Virginia license, all done without him having to leave Virginia and coming to Pennsylvania.

Senior Drivers

Some senior (and not so senior) citizens are being notified that their operating privileges are being recalled because of medical conditions or concerns reported by doctors throughout the state. If you are a Pennsylvania resident, and you were notified of a recall because of a doctors report, you too have the right to appeal these decisions to fight an improper sanction. The team at License restoration Services will review your situation and guide you through the best course to get driving again safely.
