“Every state is different when it comes to driving without your license
in the car, but one thing they have in common is that they all consider it a violation.
In some states you may be issued a warning or a minor ticket; in others it may be a hefty fine. It will be completely up to the police officers’ discretion. It is a very real possibility that your car will get impounded until they have proof that you are driving legally.
In Pennsylvania, you can apply for a duplicate driver’s license through the mail. However, it can take ten days for the request to be processed before sending out a new one. Your best course of action is to enlist the help of your family and search the house for your license. If you can’t find it, get a new one from the DMV in person.
In the future, you may want to download the Jerry
app. The app has a wallet feature that allows you to download pictures and documents and save them for future reference. This makes it a great place to store a picture of your driver’s license if you ever need it in the future.”
