I hold a NJ license, however my driving privileges in PA are being suspended for 90 days for possessing alcohol in my dorm, and being only 20 I was charged as a minor. I am currently in the ARD Program for first time offenders to expunge the charges I received, however I still received a license suspension from PennDOT.

I live in NJ along the PA border and frequently bring my terminally ill mother awaiting a transplant to doctor's appointments in Philly, as I am her current caretaker and no one else is able to drive her.

What is the likelihood that a driver license suspension will be adjusted through the appeals process?
My son refused a blood alcohol test which resulted in an automatic one year suspension of his license. He then had to appear in court and was admitted to the ARD program, but that included an additional 60 day suspension. We just received notice that the 60 day suspension will run in addition to the current year. In effect making it a 14 month suspension. If we appeal is it possible to change that to concurrent with the 12 month suspension that he is already serving?
Very, very, very difficult to win. All the cop has to do is read him the warnings that he has to give blood or lose...
