Driving Under Suspension

For a first and only conviction of driving under revocation or suspension, an additional one year will be added on top of the date you were previously eligible to reinstate, if your restraint was for a specific length of time, e.g. 1 year.

 

If you have two convictions for driving under revocation or suspension within a 5 year period (based on the date of violation, not conviction), your driving privileges will be revoked for three years.  However, if both convictions were for driving under an alcohol-based restraint, your driving privileges will be revoked for four years.

 

If you have three or more convictions for driving under revocation or suspension within a 5 year period, click here for information about the habitual traffic offender law.

 

Convictions which specify they were for driving under a Financial Responsibility Action (FRA) are not considered.

 

While under suspension, you may not drive until your license is reinstated. 

 

There are no driving privileges that can be granted by the Hearings Division while under either type of these revocations.

 

You may request a hearing, however the only issue will be is whether your motor vehicle history is correct.
