You may be able to get a license in another state after a drunk driving conviction in Pennsylvania. It depends on the timing of when you would be seeking to get that license and a number of other factors. For a DUI offense in Pennsylvania, depending on the circumstances, if a person is able to resolve their case or ARD, in some instances, there would be no license suspension at all. It could be 30 days, it could be 60 days, if a person were not able to resolve a DUI case through ARD, license suspension could be a year, it could be 18 months. It depends on which DUI offense this is, was it the first, is it the second, for example, is it the third?
In some instances, for example, a person who has a New Jersey driver's license if they get a DUI conviction in Pennsylvania, they would not be allowed to drive in Pennsylvania for the length of their suspension, but would not affect your New Jersey driving privileges. It could be other circumstances like that, for example, if a person Delaware, New York, Ohio, West Virginia, they're all adjacent to Pennsylvania. It depends where a person lives, it also depends on, again, the timing and the specific factors involved. An experienced DUI defense attorney will be able to help you best understand what's at stake and how to go about getting the best possible outcome in a DUI case.
