Since April 9, 2018, anyone charged with the following is subject to an immediate 15 months suspension of their driver’s licence, pursuant to the Traffic Safety Act:

Impaired driving
Driving “over 80"
Failing or refusing to provide a breath sample

This means that if you are charged with any alcohol related offence, the Alberta Government will immediately revoke your driving privileges, without any trial. You will not be able to apply for your licence again until your charges have been dealt with before the Courts.

You only have 30 days to file your appeal application. There is a right of appeal, which requires purchase of an appeal form from a vehicle registry office. This form must be received by the Alberta Transpiration Safety Board within 30 days of the date the suspension was imposed.

This is a deadline you cannot afford to miss. If you have been charged, let our team of experienced defence lawyers help you review your information and discuss your options moving forward. We know how important your licence is to you, and it is our primary goal to make sure you get it back as soon as possible.

Our team of lawyers is available to assist you with the suspension appeal process by:

Helping you complete and submit the required paperwork
Researching your specific case and preparing written or oral submissions on your behalf
Representing you before the Transportation Safety Board at a written or oral appeal hearing
