Reacquiring or Reinstating a Licence

What you should know

Several health problems can hinder a person's ability to drive safely. Here are a few examples:

Through a medical examination, a health care professional can determine whether a health problem hinders your ability to drive a vehicle. He or she will indicate the diagnosis in a medical report, which you must then send to us.

Once we have analyzed the report and your driving record, we will notify you in writing of our decision whether to suspend your licence or a class of licence.

What is a driver’s licence suspension?

A driver’s licence suspension means your licence is no longer valid for the length of the suspension period.

If you drive with a suspended licence, you face:

  • a fine of $300 to $600, in addition to legal and administrative costs
  • Seizure and impoundment of the vehicle you are driving for 30 days. The vehicle will be towed and impounded at the owner’s expense
