Driver prohibitions are issued by The Office of the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles. The Office can impose interventions and refer drivers to programs to improve driving behaviour. If you've received a prohibition, you won't be able to drive for a certain amount of time.
There are different types of driving prohibitions, including:
A three, seven, 30 or 90-day prohibition issued at the roadside to alcohol-impaired drivers under B.C.’s Motor Vehicle Act. Criminal charges may be laid separately.
A prohibition issued to drivers impaired by alcohol, drugs, or both.
A 90-day driving prohibition issued to impaired drivers under the Motor Vehicle Act. Criminal charges may be laid separately.
A prohibition may be issued for repeat unlicensed-driving offences. The length of prohibition is indefinite until the driver becomes licensed.
A prohibition may be issued to drivers because of a poor driving record, or for other reasons decided by the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles. The length of the driving prohibition is decided individually for each case.
