    Default Getting A Pennsylvania While Suspended in Another State

    My question involves a driver's license issued by the State of: PA

    i have just moved to PA from Vermont. my VT license is expiring in 1 week and i want to get a new one in PA. the problem - my license was suspended in NJ due to a DUI. i received a letter saying the suspension was over, but then another saying it was pending me taking DUI classes. changing my address has delayed this process and i am currently waiting for NJ to schedule my classes, which may take several months. can i get my PA license while i am waiting to take the classes and my driving privileges are suspended (i assume) in NJ?
