What is a licence
Licence Picture
A "Licence" grants permission to do something which, without such permission, would be prohibited. As such, a Licence confers no property or other rights which can be legally sold, altered or bequeathed.
Essentially, it is a privilege to do something, subject to the terms and conditions of the Licence.
New Tougher penalties for drinking and driving
Drivers who have a 0.05 to 0.08 blood alcohol concentration ("the warn Range"). Penalties have increased to :
  • First instance: driver suspended for three days
  • Second instance: driver suspended for seven days and must undergo remedial measures
  • Third or subsequent instance: driver suspended for 30 days, must undergo remedial measures and have ignition interlock for six months.
  • Providing incentives to convicted offenders to install ignition interlock devices
  • Allowing the use of forfeiture law to take vehicles away from people who continue to drink and drive.
Higher fines and longer suspensions for street racers and aggressive drivers, including those who drive 50 km/h or more over the posted speed limit on Ontario’s roads:
  • Police can issue an immediate roadside seven-day licence suspension and seven-day vehicle impoundment for street racing, participating in a driving contest or stunt driving
  • The maximum fine increases from $1,000 to $10,000 upon conviction for street racing, making it the highest penalty in Canada. The minimum fine increases from $200 to $2,000.
  • Courts can impose a driver licence suspension of up to 10 years for a second conviction, if the second conviction occurs within 10 years of the first conviction
  • For a first conviction, the maximum licence suspension period remains at 2 years.
  • The definition of a “driving stunt” includes driving a motor vehicle at 50 km/h or more above the posted speed limit.
  • The Act also bans driving a motor vehicle on a highway with a connected nitrous oxide system. Some street racers use nitrous oxide to enhance the acceleration capabilities of their vehicle.
