My daughter had a car that was inoperable and cancelled insurance. Her plan was to reinstate insurance when car was repaired. She received a letter from PenDot stating that she must surrender her plate for a car with no insurance, or her registration would be suspended for 3 months. She had contacted them and told them that her car was going to be fixed in a few weeks. She would insure her car, as soon as it was repaired. They told her that was okay.
She was stopped for traffic violation, and the policeman told her that she was driving with a suspended registration. She called PenDot and they told her that it was not suspended. She continued to drive the car. Unfortunately, she was stopped for another traffice violation and the same scenario. She had called PennDot, again. They told her that she was good. She went to police station, and the cop showed her that it was suspended. She has a $500 fine. She contacted PennDot, again. Okay, now they tell her that she needs to send plate in, and will get it back after 3 months. The confusion may have been that they had another car listed, which she previously owned. She sold it almost a year, ago, to someone in Ohio. When she purchased her other vehicle she had new plates. When she called PennDot, previously, she gave them the VIN number and title number for the car with questionable registration suspension. They told that she was okay, no suspension. I feel that she contacted them and was misinformed from Penndot representatives. Should we contact District State Represntative?
