Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Unfortunately, while you would like to appeal the suspension, when you entered the plea of guilty to "get it over with" that had to be reported to the PennDOT and the state law imposes a mandatory license and registration suspension for not having insurance. The only way to succeed on your appeal would be to provide proof to PennDOT that you did have insurance on the vehicle at the time you received the ticket. If you cannot provide such proof, then you pleading guilty would not allow PennDOT to remove the suspension.
