RESTRICTED OPERATOR’S LICENCE PROGRAM
Know more about the Restricted Operator’s Licence program.
Demerit suspensions are generally assigned for traffic violations and are applied to your driver record on your conviction date. The suspensions remain on your driving record for 2 years from the date of conviction. 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 reasons while serving a demerit suspension. The restricted licence is only valid for the period the client is suspended. When the client has completed their suspension period, the restricted licence must be exchanged for a non-restricted licence at a registry agent office.
Several situations may arise when we are in an urgent need to visit a place or there might be some medical emergency, but your suspension may not allow you to go. That’s when the Restricted Operator’s Licence can come to your rescue in such a situation. Wondering if you are eligible for this licence? Here it goes!
Clients are eligible to 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
Their driver’s licence is not a Graduated Driver Licence (GDL) or Class 7 learner’s licence
The suspension was imposed because of an accumulation of demerit points
They have no other active or pending suspensions or any types of warrants
They have not served any demerit or Criminal Code suspensions within the past two years
All outstanding fines and non-alcohol reinstatement fees must be paid in full
All other reinstatement conditions must be met
Your driving licence may get suspended or revoked if you commit certain violations. We know your driving licence is important to you, so we want to help you understand how your record affects your driving privileges. When a person is charged with a driving offence or violates the program restrictions:
The restricted licence will be revoked immediately
The client will serve the remainder of their suspension term
The client cannot reapply during this suspension period to the Restricted Operator’s Licence Program
The vehicle the client was driving may be seized for 30 days
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
Ignition Interlock Program
A client who has lost their driver licence due to some alcohol-related criminal conviction can gain conditional privilege by The Ignition Interlock Program. If your driver licence is suspended through an impaired driving-related conviction, you will be compulsorily required to participate in the Ignition Interlock Program and for that, 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 mandatory for all drivers who have been convicted of:
Having a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) equal or greater than 80 milligrams percent (.08 mg %) for first time offenders or
Refusing breath/blood sample or
BAC over .08 mg % if the client has one or more prior liquor related offences in the past 10 years
First time offenders may apply to the Alberta Transportation Safety Board for an exemption if they can provide a Certificate of Analyses that shows an alcohol concentration of less than .16 mg %.
Note: Clients are not eligible to participate in the Ignition Interlock Program if they were convicted of impaired driving causing injury or death under Section 255 of the Criminal Code.
To be eligible for participation in the Ignition Interlock Program, clients must:
Have the court’s authorization to participate in the program
Submit a copy of the Court Order of Driving Prohibition with the Ignition Interlock application to the Board
Have 30 days or less remaining in their minimum prohibition term indicated on the Court Order of Driving Prohibition
Be a resident of Alberta
Take the Planning Ahead Course when the client is a first time offender
Take the Impact Course for repeat or subsequent offenders
Submit a copy of the Summary Report with the Ignition Interlock application to the Board
Participate in the program a minimum of six months
Have no other active or pending suspensions, of any type
Ensure all other RC (Reinstatement Conditions) are met
Have a valid Alberta driver’s licence at the time of suspension
