Hi [USERNAME], my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do the best to help you. My advice is general only and does not create an attorney-client relationship. I am assuming that you are a MD resident but still have a valid PA drivers license. Since your license is valid, the citation for driving without a license is not proper. If you are a MD resident, you generally have 30 days from the time you establish your permanent residence in MD to get a MD drivers license. That would be a different citation, if that was the officers intent.
The requirement to obtain a drivers license in a particular state depends on where your primary residence is established. If you only reside part time in MD, you should not be required to obtain a MD drivers license.
I hope this information has been helpful. Please let me know if you have further questions or clarifications. Keep me posted on how things turn out. Best steve
It was longer than 30 days about 2 months. Would that still make the citation improper?
