Inquiry: I had my licence suspended for medical reasons in 2012 and it took me a year to clear it up but I eventually got my licence back. Then in October the say they sent out a notice saying that my licence would be suspended for failure to submit a satisfactory medical report, which I never received, at this time we were having a lot of trouble with our mail cause we just moved, I had mail going to my moms house and two different brothers house and some to my new house. Then I got pulled over for speeding and got a ticket for speeding and a summons for driving with a suspended licence.What actions do I take and what can I do?
Response: DRIVE UNDER SUSPENSION is a very serious offence carrying a total payable fine up to $6,250.00, a mandatory 6 month licence suspension, and possible jail time upon conviction. We can certainly help by getting a release of evidence from the Prosecutor’s Office to review for any possible defences. Depending on the details of the Crown’s case we can determine whether the charge can be withdrawn, be negotiated to a lesser offence, or if the case will have to be argued at trial.
