In my state a DUI driver loses driving privileges immediately upon the finding and with no other appeal options available.

Check with a PA lawyer in your locale to discuss more of the details.

Good luck to you.

God bless.

I agree with my colleague, that the most typical result (here in NJ and in all of the other States with which I am familiar) is that the license is taken when there is no other appeal or court action possible, and no stay granted by the Court. Good luck.
