    Default Vehicle Registration Suspended Due to Lapse in Car Insurance

    My question involves vehicle registration or title in the state of: PA
    In Philadelphia my car insurance cancelled due to non payment without my notice. I switched from automatic bank transfer to check by phone and forgot to call the check in. 1 month later I recieve a bill from insurance company for a small portion of the regular bill due for insured time and that my policy has cancelled. I paid it up to date immediately but later recieved a notice from the PennDOT stating that my insurance coverage was terminated and as a result of that the registration of my vehicle is being suspended for 3 months. I called the insurance company and PennDOT and understand that you can miss insurance for 30 days if the car wasn't driven but I reinstated my policy on the 34th day. (immediately after reciving the first letter). I just took a job where I use my car to visit clients and I want to know if anyone has any idea around this as I can not be without my car for 3 months. I am willing to pay fines but can't afford the suspension. Any thoughts or experiences are welcome.

    Transfer the car to someone else.

    The only way to register that car is to transfer the car to a friend or relative.
    Other than that, you can not drive that car for 3 months.

    You MUST turn in your plate to get credit for the three month suspension.
    You can also transfer the car back to your name after the three months.
