NOTE: The August 14th live presentation of this seminar at our Pittsburgh location has been cancelled. On August 21st the live Philadelphia seminar will be simulcasted to Pittsburgh. Please check the registration page for this listing.
In the last two years we have seen significant legislative changes to the vehicle code. The law now changes the way PennDOT assigns suspensions, removes the court from collecting licenses, removes drug act-based suspensions and underage drinking-based suspensions, changes the eligibility requirements for occupational limited licenses and mandates Ignition Interlock Licenses for first time DUI suspensions.
This program will assist you in how to best represent your clients in protecting their privilege to drive. Recent decisions of our appellate courts have provided more protection from PennDOT imposing suspensions months and years after a criminal conviction.
Learn how CDL holders may be able to overcome a lifetime CDL disqualification if they act promptly in preserving their appeal rights.
