Administrative Driving Prohibition

An Administrative Driving Prohibition is issued to a person who is convicted of operating or being in the care or control of a motor vehicle while impaired by a drug or a combination of a drug and alcohol (section 255, Highway Traffic Act).

For drivers other than graduated drivers

An Administrative Driving Prohibition will be issued to any person whose concentration of alcohol exceeded 80 milligrams of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood, OR who fails or refuses to comply with a demand to supply a sample of breath or blood, OR who was impaired by a drug or a combination of a drug and alcohol.

For graduated drivers or drivers under the age of 19 years

An Administrative Driving Prohibition will be issued to any person who concentration of alcohol exceeded 0 milligrams of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood, OR who fails or refuses to comply with a demand to supply a sample of breath or blood, OR who was impaired by a drug or a combination of a drug and alcohol.

Administrative driving prohibition review process

If you have been served with an Administrative Driving Prohibition, you may apply to the Registrar for a review within 7 days of being served with the notice. You must file an application within the 7 day time period and pay the Registrar all applicable fees.

Note: The filing of an application for review does not stay the Administrative Driving Prohibition, or give the Registrar any discretion to revoke a driving prohibition or to grant conditional licences because the imposition of the driving prohibition causes hardship, whether personal, financial or otherwise.
