Unfortunately, he is going to have to file an appeal with PennDOT and will have to provide proof the license was surrendered to Bradford County, but without that proof, such as an officer testifying it was surrendered, I am afraid PennDOT will not budge without some proof other than his word, because the law says the license must be physically turned in to PennDOT for the suspension to be valid. He has a right though to an administrative hearing and he needs to file for one, since many times the county officers will appear and testify that it is their process to take licenses post jail release and if they testify to that, then he can convince the administrative hearing officer that this was an error on the part of the county and he had no license to physically surrender. Thus, the only thing he can do is ask for an administrative hearing and provide some evidence or testimony to support his contention it as turned in.
