How did your license get suspended in the first place?
There are many things that can lead to a
driver’s license suspension in Pennsylvania. There are also a few
types of suspensions: court ordered and administrative.
Your license may have been suspended for:
Hit and run
- Drug possession
- Excessive Points
- Breath test refusal
- Underage drinking
Regardless of why your license was
suspended or what type of suspension it was, you are not allowed to
drive and face additional charges if caught.
What kind of Penalties will I Face?
Driving on a suspended license is a summary
offense. You can be sentenced to serve as much as 90 days in jail
and will have a fine of at least $100. The judge may also extend
your suspension or, depending on your points, revoke it altogether.
In addition to the criminal consequences, you
may face problems with auto insurance if and when your license is
reinstated. You may be seen as a “high risk” for auto insurance
companies and have to deal with high rates or uninsurability.
Facing charges for not following a directive of
the court does not look good in the eyes of a judge. Having to go in
front of a judge without an attorney on your side is a risky
proposition. An experienced attorney can argue the facts in your
favor, and challenge the system to treat you fairly, prove the case
against you beyond a reasonable doubt if necessary, and make sure
your rights and interests are protected.
