    Unhappy How to Get Around a Suspended Registration so You Can Drive the Car

    My question involves vehicle registration or title in the state of: Pennsylvania

    My registration and plates are being suspended for 3 months due to lapse in insurance. I appealed but lost.
    Can I change another person as owner of my car and have valid registration and plates so i will be able to drive and keep working?? Or do I need to sell my car and would I be able to get a valid registration and plates that way?? PLEASE, I need help or I will lose my job.......

    You'd better check the status of your driver's license. According to the DMV, operating your vehicle while the insurance has lapsed also results in a driver's license suspension for 3 months.

    http://www.dmv.state.pa.us/insurance/index.shtml

    What's interesting about that page is that it refers to "your vehicle registration privilege" not "your vehicle registration." Might be referring to your privilege to register ANY vehicle.

    Rather than try a potentially costly end run around the insurance law I suggest you take cbg's advice about getting a bus pass. Or car pool with somebody. Or ride a bike. Or take a taxi.

    If you do not turn in your plates and all licenses, the suspension does not start.

    Subject to verification, I don't think that's right.

    I think that the suspension starts upon getting the notice and the time it takes to turn in the plates is added to the three month period.

    I don't think the suspension can be avoided by not turning in the plates.

    It doesn't make sense that somebody can keep the plates with impunity and getting the notice of suspension.

    It is a PA thing. One guy forgot to turn in his motorcycle permit so they never started the suspension.

    She's already on the radar by appealing.

    Sometimes people's wrongdoings fall through the cracks. Not always.

    There's a risk that OP can be pulled over for something and when the officer finds her suspension on the computer, SHTF.
