    Access the Vehicle Code

    The Pennsylvania Code website provides access to endless chapters of codes and laws explained in full legalese. The code will never be confused for light reading, but it nevertheless serves its purpose well as a massive source of definitive law information.

    Any questions you have about why you received a traffic ticket are contained in the vehicle code. In fact, this is a great place to start if you want to build a case to fight a citation in court. The code can also answer very specific questions about, say, how big your car's tail lights need to be (in case you've ever wondered).

    All of the motor vehicle laws are contained in Title 67 under the name "Transportation." In all, there are over 125 chapters, including:

    Check Your Driver's License Status

    Whenever you need or want to check the status of your driver’s license, you can order a driving record report. This record will spell out if your driver’s license is currently valid. Should your license have been revoked or suspended, the report will indicate that according to what’s on record at the DOT. This report will also show points against your license and, in some cases, information on any accidents you have had.
