Probationary License


A Probationary License is a driver’s license that is issued to Pennsylvania drivers whose license have been suspended or revoked for five or more years. This special license will allow you to drive your motor vehicle, but there are time limitations on when you may drive. To qualify for a Probationary License, you must meet the criteria before PennDOT will issue you one.
Some of the requirements of a Probationary License are the following: you did not drive during the minimum period of the suspension or revocation, any outstanding balances must be paid in full, and only certain offense will qualify.
The minimum period where your driving record must be free of any driving offense depends on what caused the current suspension or revocation. Before you are eligible for a Probationary License, you must serve a portion of your suspension or revocation before PennDOT will issue you a license. This time period depends on what caused your suspension or revocation, but the minimum period is between three to seven years in most cases.
Before obtaining a Probationary License, any outstanding balances, judgments and fines must be paid in full before you apply. This does include any payment plans.
Only certain offenses will qualify for a Probationary License. There are offenses that will make you ineligible for this license. If the reason for your suspension or revocation is not a disqualifier, again, going back to the first requirement, you still must serve a portion of your suspension or revocation.
