Lose it for Life

Longer Suspension Periods for Repeat Offenders
Drivers, who offend and are convicted of Criminal Code driving related offences, lose their driving privileges for:
* One year on a first conviction;
* Three years on a second conviction;
* Life on a third conviction, which may be reduced to 10 years if certain conditions are met; and
* Life on a fourth conviction with no possibility of ever having an Ontario driver’s licence again.
In addition, driving-related Criminal Code convictions remain on a driver’s record. Drivers must be conviction free for 10 years before they will be considered to have a clean driving record. This applies to convictions since September 30, 1993.
