Reasons Driver's Licenses May Be Suspended
There are numerous reasons your driver’s license could be suspended in Ontario. Common causes include:
- Accumulated Demerit Points – Many traffic tickets come with demerit points. If you are convicted of these offences, the points are added to your driving record. If the total number of points reaches 15 or more, or 9 or more for new drivers, your license will be suspended for 30 or 60 days respectively. Even before these thresholds, you may be asked to attend a meeting to discuss if your license should be suspended. This is why it is so important to hire a traffic ticket lawyer to fight every ticket.
- Failure to Appear/Pay – If you fail to appear at meetings with the Ministry or if you do not pay outstanding fines, this can also lead to a driver’s license suspension. This does not mean pay fines as soon as you receive them; paying is an admission of guilt. Consult with one of our traffic ticket attorneys first.

Do Not Drive with a Suspended License
Driving without a license is a serious offence in Toronto and throughout Ontario. A driving under suspension ticket can lead to an extended suspension, large fines, and even imprisonment. Being unaware of your suspension is not an acceptable defense for these charges, making it all the more crucial that you stay well informed of your driving record.
