What if I’m caught driving while under a medical suspension?

Driving while your license is medically suspended is considered one of the most serious offences under the Highway Traffic Act. A person caught driving under medical suspension is charged no less than $1000 and no more than $5000. Additionally, you will receive a mandatory six-month suspension of your license after the medical suspension has been lifted. In serious cases, you can face a term of imprisonment, which does not exceed six months. Your insurance company may increase your insurance rate for up to three years after the incident occurs. Basically, don’t drive while your license is medically suspended!
