What to know about a suspended License

Persons convicted of violations under the Criminal Code of Canada, the Motor Vehicle Accident Claims Act, or the Traffic Safety Act, involving the operation or control of a motor vehicle may be suspended or disqualified from driving in accordance with limits stated in the Traffic Safety Act.

It is unlawful to be in possession of an operator’s License while it is suspended or disqualified. It is a serious offence to drive while unauthorized, punishable by law. Drivers stopped by a peace officer and found to have their operator’s License suspended will have the vehicle they were driving seized and impounded for a period of 30 days.

If the vehicle seizure involves the same suspended driver and owner within a three-year window, the seizure period is 60 days. Only individuals who are in possession of a full, non-GDL driver’s License can apply for a restricted drivers License due to a demerit suspension.
