I received an underage drinking citation in Pa. I am from Nj and 17.

Cranford, NJ |

The police said I just pay a fine and it is not on my record but I know Pa has a 90 driver license suspension. What will be reported to NJ. Are there further penalties that will be imposed by NJ?

I was not driving.

  1. You need to speak to a Pa. attorney on this. Normally you would think it would be reported but DWI in Pa. is criminal and you are a juvenille so I do not know.


  2. Seek a consultation with both a PA and NJ lawyer. I believe it will be reported to NJMVC and translate into a 3 month suspension in NJ

    Do NOT rely on this answer as the information provided here is not legal advice nor is it a substitute for legal advice which requires a consultation with a lawyer. This response does not create an attorney-client relationship.


  3. You need to contact a PA attorney.
    If one state suspends your driving privilege and you are not a licensed driver in that state, they are supposed to report the suspension to your home state.
