  1. Speak to a PA DUI lawyer on how to release the hold on your license then speak to a FL attorney on if your eligible for a FL restricted license.


  2. You may want to call the PA drivers license bureau to see what it will require for them to release your license. It may be as simple as a compliance. Depending on what you find out you may want to speak with a PA attorney, but I would get the information first so that you know what you are asking for help with in your case. Hope that's helpful.


  3. I've dealt with this fact scenario before. You need to clear up your PA license issue before you can undue the suspension in Florida. Contact a PA attorney or post your question on the PA forum.
