What to know about the Alberta Vehicle Seizure Program
The Vehicle Seizure Program is designed to uphold the integrity of road safety regulations and ensure that drivers adhere to the requirements of a valid operator’s License. Through the imposition of vehicle seizure and impoundment, the program seeks to create a strong deterrent against driving with a suspended License, ultimately contributing to safer roadways for all users.
Under Alberta’s IRS Vehicle Seizure Program, your vehicle will be seized for a specific length of time
- 30 days – A person found operating a vehicle with a suspended or disqualified License will have their vehicle seized for a 30-day period – section 173(1) of the Traffic Safety Act.
- 60 days – If it is a second occurrence within a 3-year period of the first occurrence, a person found operating a vehicle with a suspended or disqualified License will have their vehicle seized for a 60-day period – section 173(2) of the Traffic Safety Act.
