    Default License Suspension Due to Suspended Registration

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

    Hello. This question is for an acquaintance so I hope I have all the details correct. He is a NY resident and was pulled over in PA for having a suspended registration. The insurance on the vehicle he was operating had lapsed for two days in February, 2019. He paid the premium on it two days late. NY suspended the registration due to the lapse. He stated he never received a suspension notice. He was pulled over and cited on 3/11/2019 for PA Title 75, Section 1371, Subsection A. On the next morning he paid for the ticket he received in PA as well as the fines for NY for the lapse in insurance. He recently received notice from PA that his license will be suspended for 3 months. Is there any way to appeal this suspension? How would he go about appealing the suspension, i.e. What would be grounds for an appeal? My concern is that he already paid the ticket thus pleading guilty to the offense and it will hinder an appeal? Will PA report this to NY and then his license suspended in NY as well? Thank you in advance and sorry for so many questions.

    If he received notice of an administrative suspension in Pennsylvania, that notice will explain how he can challenge the suspension. He cannot lawfully drive in Pennsylvania while he is suspended, even if New York doesn't act on that suspension.

    We have no way of knowing whether Pennsylvania will abstract the suspension to New York or if New York will process the abstract on a schedule that would result in the suspension of his New York license; it is possible that the 90 days will end before New York acts and we have seen plenty of cases where no action is taken until a license is up for renewal (which again would likely be past the 90 day mark). He will have to wait and see what happens.

    Mr. Knowitall -

    Thank you for your reply and sorry for the late thank you. I thought that would be the case, but really wasn't sure so verification from you was very helpful.
