Driving Under Suspension


20Years’ Experience in Traffic Tickets

Helping Canadians solve their traffic ticket problems for 20 Years

The Highway Traffic Act states that any person who drives a motor vehicle or streetcar on a highway while his/her driver’s license is suspended under an Act of Legislature or a regulation made thereunder is guilty of an offence. This merits an increasing fine depending on the severity of the offence, and each subsequent offence can only increase said fine up to the finality of an imprisonment for a term of not more than six months.

Reasons behind a suspended license can fall under unpaid traffic tickets or fines, alcohol-related offences, medical reasons, and demerit points.

Driving while suspended can definitely cost you more than your licence. Seven-day impoundment can be applied to people who drive with a suspended license, and being convicted of driving while suspended can also affect your insurance in the long run. Even worse, if you operate a vehicle with an expired license and you get into an accident, your automobile insurance policy is less likely to cover the vehicle damages (being ineligible to receive benefits due to income replacement and becoming personally liable to sustained damages and injuries suffered by the other party in the accident are also consequences in the same regard).

A professional legal team can help eliminate the charges entirely. Should this prove unsuccessful, they can minimize the impact on your license and reduce the charge by negotiating with the prosecution for the lowest possible fine. At the very least, our efforts will keep you out of jail.
