How does the Vehicle Impoundment Program work?

A driver caught driving while his/her license is suspended for a Criminal Code conviction will be given an impound notice (issued by the Registrar of Motor Vehicles) by an enforcement officer. The vehicle will immediately be towed to an impound yard for a minimum of 45 days. The vehicle owner or plate holder must pay the towing and storage costs before the vehicle is released at the end of the impoundment period.
