suspensions due to unpaid tolls
PA TURNPIKE COMMISSION
SECTIONS 1380a AND 1380E OF THE PENNSYLVANIA VEHICLE CODE
Effective August 4, 2017, under
the Pennsylvania Vehicle Code, if you have incurred six or more unpaid toll
violations or invoices, or have accumulated $500 or more in unpaid tolls and
fees, or defaulted in a payment plan for tolls and fees from the PA Turnpike
Commission (PTC), your vehicle registration may be suspended. If you do not
respond within 30 days, the PTC may notify PennDOT and you will be sent a
notice of suspension, as authorized in Section 1380(a).
additional suspension may be imposed if you have incurred additional unpaid
tolls while your registration is suspended as authorized in Section 1380(e).
payments of tolls must be made to the PTC at 300 East Park Drive, Harrisburg,
PA 17111. All questions regarding these
tolls must be directed to the PTC by calling 1-877-736-6727 and selecting
suspension will remain in effect until compliance is confirmed by the PTC and
all other applicable restoration requirements are satisfied. If you fail to pay
the tolls and fees by the suspension effective date, an indefinite suspension
will go into effect and an administrative hold will be placed on your vehicle
registration. A restoration fee will be
required before registration is restored.
restoration fee will be paid to the PTC at the time the tolls and other fees
are paid. The restoration fee is subject
to a biennial Consumer Price Index adjustment.
For the current restoration fee amount due, review Form MV-70S, “Bureau of Motor
Vehicles Schedule of Fees,” or obtain a restoration requirements letter. The restoration requirements letter outlines all criteria
that must be met before a vehicle's registration can be restored.
