Vehicle registrations are suspended for many reasons including a lapse of insurance coverage, citations or accidents, or unpaid PA Turnpike tolls. One of the most common is due to a lapse of insurance coverage. If you are facing a suspended registration due to insurance lapse we can help you.
If the insurance lapse is less than 30 days, and the vehicle was not driven during those 30 days, bring proof that the owner of the vehicle obtained insurance coverage in their name on that vehicle. was obtained. A signed MV-221 form will also need to be submitted. If the lapse is more than 30 days, the registration plate and card should be returned to PennDOT to begin serving a 3-month suspension.
A civil penalty fee of $500 can be paid in lieu of serving the suspension. A restoration fee will also need to be paid. You may choose to pay the civil penalty no more than one time within a 12-month timeframe.
