Cancelling the driver's licence of a deceased person
To cancel the driver's licence of a deceased person, you can:
In the case of a driver's licence or probationary licence, we may be able to reimburse you for the fees paid for the number of complete months remaining on your licence. In the case of a learner's licence, no fees are reimbursed.
You may be entitled to a reimbursement of fees based on the number of months the licence is revoked or suspended. However, certain conditions apply.
If you have received a driver's licence issued outside Québec, reimbursement of fees will be based on the date the foreign licence was issued and the number of months already paid for your Québec licence. You will need to present your foreign driver's licence or provide a copy.
By bringing an original death certificate or other acceptable document as well as the licence to be cancelled to one of our service outlets, you may be eligible for a reimbursement of fees that had already been paid for any months following the date of death.
You can relinquish one or more licence classes of a driver's licence, probationary licence or learner's licence. For example, you could relinquish Class 6A if you are no longer interested in driving motorcycles.
To cancel a class, you must go to one of our service outlets, where you will receive a new licence and pay issuance fees.
You have less than 3 years to restore a cancelled driver's licence class
After 3 years, you will have to pass the knowledge and road tests again.
For example, if you relinquish a licence class on April 12, 2016, you have until April 11, 2019 to restore the cancelled licence class without having to take the tests again.
