Filing a complaint regarding an SAAQ service

Change

You can express your dissatisfaction regarding a service offered by the SAAQ, one of its representatives or a driving school using our online form, or by mail, by fax or by telephone.

Before filing a complaint, discuss your dissatisfaction

We suggest that you first discuss your situation with:

  • a customer service representative
  • the employee assigned to your file
  • the driving school employee
  • if applicable, the immediate supervisor of the employee with whom you have had contact

The person you speak with may be able to offer a satisfactory solution.

If you communicate with the SAAQ, always note:

  • the name of the employees with whom you speak
  • the date of the telephone calls you receive or make
  • a summary of the discussions
  • the results of your discussions

If your dissatisfaction persists, you can file a complaint with the SAAQ

If you are not satisfied with the solution offered by the person you speak with, you can file a complaint. If you decide to do so, we will ask you to provide the information we need in order to open a file regarding your complaint. If necessary, you may be asked to provide additional information when your complaint is analyzed.

Who may file a complaint?

Individuals and businesses may have a representative act on their behalf, provided that authorization to do so has been granted.

A representative may be:

  • a family member or a friend
  • an association
  • an attorney

Situations where a complaint cannot be processed

Complaints cannot be processed in the following situations:

  • The issue or situation addressed by the complaint is already subject to legal proceedings or an administrative review.
  • The complaint concerns police ethics, our internal management, personnel management or staff relations.
  • All avenues for processing and re-evaluating the complaint have been exhausted.
  • The complaint concerns the denunciation of another person.
  • The complaint concerns a service offered by another government department or agency, a non-profit organization or a private business (excluding driving schools).
