It's likely going to depend on what you got it suspended for.

When you apply for a DL in NJ, you are asked to answer the following question:

Are your driving privileges currently suspended in NJ or in any other state?

While I can't guarantee that PA asks the same question on their forms, I am fairly sure that they do.
If you are comfortable with the likely penalties for lying to a government agency, then--sure--go for it.
However, the old saying...If you can't do the time, don't do the crime...comes to mind here.

PA and NJ are part of DLC http://www.dmv.state.pa.us/pdotforms...ets/fs-dlc.pdf

They will know that you are suspended in NJ.

They will know that you are suspended in NJ.

...and the consequences for claiming--in writing--that the license isn't suspended could be...interesting.

PA will know about your suspension, that does not mean they will not issue a DL. You want to find out if PA will issue a Dl while you have a suspension in another state.

What violations committed in a member state will result in the suspension of my drivingprivilege in PA?
A:
The following offenses, if committed in a member state, would be treated as though the offense had
occurred in Pennsylvania and the appropriate sanction would be imposed under the provisions of our
Vehicle Code:

Manslaughter or negligent homicide resulting from the operation of a motor vehicle (Section
3732);

Driving a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcoholic beverages or a narcotic to a degree
which renders the driver incapable of safely driving a motor vehicle
(Section 3731; repealed 2/1/2004)
Section 3802 (effective 2/1/2004)

Failure to stop and render aid in the event of a motor vehicle accident resulting in the death or
personal injury of another (Section 3742);

Any felony in the commission of which a motor vehicle is used (Crimes Code and Dangerous Drug
Act Offenses).
Although reported to PennDOT, minor traffic offenses such as speeding, red light, stop sign, etc., will
(
NOT
) appear on your driving record, unless you are a CDL holder. Points will not be assessed to
your PA driving record when convicted of a point related offense in a DLC member state.
