Know more about the Restricted Operator’s Licence program.

Demerit Suspension

Demerit suspensions are generally assigned for traffic violations and are applied to your driver record on your conviction date. These suspensions remain on your driving record for two years from the date of reinstatement. The points vary depending upon the offence made.

The Restricted Operator's Licence Program is used by clients who need to drive for employment, health, or education while serving a demerit suspension. The restricted licence is only valid for the period the client is suspended. If the client has completed their suspension period, the restricted licence should be exchanged for a non-restricted licence at a registry agent's office.

Eligibility Criteria

Several situations may arise when you urgently need to visit a place or attend a medical emergency, but your suspension may not allow you to go. That’s when the Restricted Operator’s Licence can come to your rescue! Wondering if you are eligible for this licence? Here’s how it goes!

Clients can participate in the Restricted Operator’s Licence Program if they meet the following criteria:

  • Have a valid Alberta driver’s licence at the time of receiving the notice of pending suspension

  • The suspension was imposed because of an accumulation of demerit points

  • They have not served any demerit or Criminal Code suspensions within the past two years

  • Example labelaReside or are employed in a remote area without readily available access to other means of transportation (ie. public transportation)

  • All other reinstatement conditions must be met

  • Their driver’s licence is not a Graduated Driver Licence (GDL) or Class 7 learner’s licence

  • They have no other active or pending suspensions or any types of warrants

  • All outstanding fines and non-alcohol reinstatement fees must be paid in full

  • Able to provide proof of employment or self-employment if applying for employment reasons

Revoked Licence

If you commit certain offences in Calgary, your driver's licence may be suspended or cancelled. Since we at Registry @ South Trail Crossing Ltd. recognize how important your driver's licence is to you, we'd want to assist you in understanding how your driving history impacts your driving rights. If you have been fined a traffic offence or have broken one of the program's restrictions, the following is a list of what will happen to your licence.

  • The restricted licence will be revoked immediately

  • The client cannot reapply during this suspension period to the Restricted Operator’s Licence Demerit Program

  • The client may be charged with driving while suspended. If the client is charged and convicted of driving while suspended, their licence will be suspended for at least an additional six-month period

  • The client will serve the remainder of their suspension term

  • The vehicle the client was driving may be seized for 30 days


A client who has lost their driver's licence due to some alcohol-related criminal conviction can gain conditional privilege through the Ignition Interlock Program. Suppose your driver's licence is suspended through an impaired driving-related conviction, you may be required to participate in the Ignition Interlock Program. You must demonstrate a sustained ability to separate driving and drinking. It involves the installation of an ignition interlock device in a vehicle as a condition of driver licensing. This device measures the alcohol level of the driver and locks the ignition if the reading is too high.

Depending on the circumstances, participation in the program may be mandatory or voluntary.  The Ignition Interlock Program is compulsory for all drivers who have been convicted of:

  • Having a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) equal or greater than 80 milligrams of alcohol in 100 milligrams of blood

  • Refusing breath/blood sample

To be eligible for participation in the Ignition Interlock Program, clients must:

  • Have the court’s authorization to participate in the program

  • Have 30 days or less remaining in their minimum prohibition term indicated on the Court Order of Driving Prohibition

  • Take the Planning Ahead Course when the client is a first time offender

  • Have no other active or pending suspensions, of any type

  • Have a valid Alberta driver’s licence at the time of suspension

  • Submit a copy of the Court Order of Driving Prohibition with the Ignition Interlock application to the Board
