If you relocate to Pennsylvania from New Jersey, you are required to acquire a Pennsylvania state driver's license within 60 days of acquiring your new Pennsylvania permanent address. New residents must pay a new license fee; take a vision test; complete Form DL-180R, an Application for Pennsylvania Non-Commercial Driver's License By Out-of-State Non-CDL Driver; show their Social Security card; and prove Pennsylvania residency. If your New Jersey driver's license has been expired for six months, you must also take the state's Knowledge Test.
Visit the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation's website to locate the nearest Driver's License Center. Click "Driver & Vehicle Services" in the left navigation column. In the right column under Online Vehicle & Driver Services, click "Find a PennDOT Location Near You." Select "Find a Driver's License Center." Scroll to the middle of that page and enter your ZIP code in section 1 to find the closest location to your home address.
In section 2, narrow your search by clicking "New Resident Drivers License/Transfer" check box. Click "Search" at the bottom of the page.
Bring your New Jersey driver's license, proof of your new Pennsylvania address, your Social Security card and the license fee to a Driver's License Center in your area that handles new resident driver's licenses.

Fill out Form DL-180R and take the vision test at the Driver's License Center. If you have an expired New Jersey license, you must also take the Knowledge Test.
If you pass the required tests, you will be awarded a Pennsylvania license and your New Jersey driver's license will be confiscated.
