The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania recently enacted a statute which offers a huge break to any Pennsylvania licensed driver whose privilege to drive has been or will be suspended due to a charge of driving under the influence or a refusal of chemical testing. (blood or breathalyzer)
The great news is that you can limit your exposure to a long-term license suspension under this new statute. Unlike the old Occupational Limited License, you may drive anytime and anywhere with this new Ignition Interlock Limited License! It is not just a work only license.
You are monitored by an Ignition Interlock machine which is placed in your personal automobile by a private vendor. This vendor reports to Penndot directly. Using this machine, it tests your ability to operate a motor vehicle safely by confirming your sobriety.
Once you have the Ignition Interlock machine installed, a petition with the required exhibits must be submitted to Penndot. Once everything is submitted properly to Penndot, they are statutorily mandated to provide your Ignition Interlock license to you within twenty days!
For example, if you are convicted of driving under the influence and receive a one-year license suspension from Penndot, you may be eligible to drive after just 20 days of suspension.
Other suspension offenses can be significantly reduced in similar fashion. For one of our clients, Penndot suspended their license for a DUI and Refusal. In his case,this was an aggregate suspension of two and a half (2 ½ ) years. We are reducing his suspension from two and one-half (2 ½) years to nine (9) months. Another client’s suspension was reduced to six (6) months after Penndot initially advised them of a two-year (2 year) license suspension.
