Once you have served your suspension, you may come in and obtain your licence again. In most cases, you will have a set of reinstatement conditions to fulfill before a licence can be issued to you. Due to the various types of suspensions, we are unable to list all possible conditions. Come into our office or give us a call so we can assist you in determining which conditions you will have to fulfill.

  Restricted Licence

A restricted drivers licence is issued to clients who currently are suspended, and the suspension hinders their job status or livelihood. You can purchase an application for restricted licence from us, and send the paperwork into Driver Fitness and Monitoring. Should they approve you, they will allow you a licence that only allows you to drive from point A to point B within certain time frames. Basic requirements are:

  • You must be suspended
  • The suspension cannot be an alcohol suspension
  • You cannot apply if you have a GDL licence or a class 7 licence

  Ignition Interlock

The Ignition Interlock Program allows individuals who have lost their operator's licence through an impaired driving conviction an opportunity to gain conditional driving privileges. There are many restrictions that apply and there are specific eligibility criteria. The Ignition Interlock Program is administered by the Alberta Transportation Safety Board.

Drivers who meet the Ignition Interlock Program criteria can have an alcohol sensing device installed in their vehicle ignition system. The driver is prevented from starting and/or driving his/her vehicle if the device detects a level of alcohol. All program activity is recorded and monitored.

You can come in and purchase an application for ignition interlock from us or you can pick up the participant guide to see if you might qualify for the device.
