Today’s tip is in regards to citizens who move to PA from another state.
The PA vehicle code defines a resident as ” A person dwelling permanently or continuously for a period exceeding 60 consecutive days within this Commonwealth, except that a person who regularly dwells in two or more states shall declare residence to be in one of the states.”
As a result if you move to PA from out of state you have 60 days to get a PA Driver’s License and have you car registered and inspected in PA. If a person fails to comply with this residency requirement, they are subject to individual fines for their driver’s license, vehicle registration, and inspection.
Please visit the PennDOT webiste for more information. http://www.dmv.state.pa.us/centers/OnlineServicesCenter.shtml
