There will likely be significant call volumes as thousands of PA drivers call to settle their debts. The PA Turnpike’s Customer Service Center is open Monday - Friday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.

I keep calling but cannot get through!

It is possible there will be times when callers will wait in queue or may not be able to get through on the first try, especially if they call Mondays and Tuesdays, which are high-volume days. Callers in queue can request a call back or leave a voicemail message. They will receive a return call within 24 to 48 hours.

How can I make a payment?

The PA Turnpike Customer Service Center accepts payments via check, credit card and money order. Cash payments can only be accepted in person at the Customer Service Center located at 300 East Park Drive, Harrisburg, PA 17111.

PennDOT suspended my registration, what does that mean?

When a vehicle registration is suspended, you no longer have the privilege of operating the vehicle on the road until the registration is valid.

How do I reactivate my registration?

Once the vehicle owner has settled unpaid toll violations and invoices and paid the restoration fee, PennDOT will be notified. PennDOT will then notify the vehicle owner that the suspension has been removed and the registration has been reinstated.
