Can PA DMV suspend/revoke your license for an out of state (NY) BAC Refusal?

Harrisburg, PA |

Cannot drive in NY for 1 year as part of the NY DMV Administrative court hearing. Can PA DMV suspend/revoke your license for an out of state (NY) BAC Refusal? This was part of the NY DMV Administrative court (not criminal). Will PA find out?

There is no conviction in criminal court.

  1. New York will likely notify PA that their licensee has received such a suspension, but PA should not take any action against your license.

  2. You should be OK if you were not convicted or placed into a 1st time offender's program. Administrative refusal suspensions generally do not cross state lines.
