Pennsylvania considers reckless driving to be a serious traffic offense. If convicted, PennDOT will suspend your driver’s license for at least 6 moths. If it’s your third conviction of a major traffic violation, you will be classified as a “Habitual Offender” and PennDOT will revoke your driver’s license for 5 years. You would not be eligible for an Occupational Limited License or work license.
