HAVE YOU BEEN CAUGHT DRIVING
WITHOUT A LICENCE IN ONTARIO?

To protect Ontario citizens and promote safe driving, the province has strict laws regarding individuals driving while impaired by drugs or alcohol, as well as reckless driving, driving with a suspended licence, and many more.

PUNISHMENTS FOR DRIVING WITHOUT A LICENCE

To be legally allowed to drive, you must hold a valid licence of the appropriate class for the vehicle you are driving. This offence applies to anyone driving a motor vehicle without a valid driver’s licence. If you have been issued a driver’s licence and it expires and you do not renew it, you could be guilty of this offence.

Making the decision to drive without a licence can come with great risks. Penalties can vary depending on the circumstances causing the lack of the licence. For example, if the driver has never had a licence before, or it is expired, the punishment will be less severe but may include high fines.

Upon conviction of driving with no licence, the different penalties are:

  • A fine of between $200 – $1,000
  • A conviction on your driving record for 3 years
  • Demerit points
  • Raised insurance rates
  • Even potential jail time

REASONS FOR DRIVING WITHOUT A LICENCE

There are many different reasons why an individual may be caught driving without a licence. Often, people may have never applied to receive a driver’s licence from their local Service Ontario. A driver may also have been caught without their licence because it has either been suspended or revoked due to driving without a valid or suspended licence.

In some cases, a person may be stopped for a traffic violation and realize afterwards they have forgotten their valid licence. Even though they own a valid licence, the driver is unable to prove this to the police officer. Therefore, the driver will either be given a citation or a warning, but they are provided with the opportunity to show the licence at a later date. Failure to produce a licence is presumed to mean the driver does not have a valid driver’s licence, and it is the driver’s obligation to produce a licence in the court in order to avoid the punishment.
