Reasons for a License Suspension or Revocation in Chester County

A person may have their license suspended for many reasons, including:

  • Refusal to submit to blood alcohol concentration (BAC) test
  • Conviction for a driving under the influence (DUI) charge
  • Failing to adhere to interlock ignition device guidelines
  • A conviction for careless or reckless driving
  • A conviction of aggravated assault or homicide while driving

These suspensions may last from months to years, but they must be adhered to in order to avoid even more serious consequences.

Penalties for Driving While License Suspended for Non-DUI Offenses in West Chester

If an alleged offender is convicted of driving while his or her license was suspended, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) can suspend his or her driving privileges under Pennsylvania Consolidated Statute Title 75 § 1543(c) for an additional one-year period. If the alleged offender’s license was revoked, then PennDOT may revoke his or her privileges for an additional two-year period.

People who are convicted of driving under suspension for charges not relating to DUI, BAC test refusal, or Driver’s License Compact violations are subject to the following penalties:

  • First Offense — $200 fine
  • Second, Third, Fourth, or Fifth Offense — Fine of up to $1,000 and up to six months in jail
  • Sixth or Subsequent Offense — Fine of up to $1,000 and up to six months in jail

Pennsylvania Penalties for Driving While License Revoked for DUI

Alleged offenders charged with driving under suspension who had their operating privileges suspended or revoked because of DUI, BAC test refusal, or Driver’s License Compact violations are subject to much more serious penalties than motorists who had their licenses suspended or revoked for other reasons.

In these cases, a first offense can result in a $500 fine and up to 90 days in prison. However, if the alleged offender has a BAC of 0.02 percent at the time of testing or any amount of a Schedule I or nonprescribed Schedule II or III controlled substance in his or her system, the penalties are again increased:

  • First Offense — Fine of $1,000 and minimum of 90 days in prison
  • Second Offense — Classified as third-degree misdemeanor punishable by fine of $2,500 fine and minimum of six months in prison
  • Third Offense — Classified as first-degree misdemeanor punishable by fine of $5,000 fine and minimum of two years in prison

It is also important to note that a person who is convicted of three driving under suspension offenses relating to DUI will be classified as a habitual offender under Pennsylvania Consolidated Statute Title 75 § 1542 and have his or her license revoked for an additional period of five years.
