License Violation in Ontario
In Ontario’s province, you can only drive if you have a valid driving license of the appropriate class for the vehicle you are going to. The region establishes strict laws regarding individuals who drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs and reckless driving.
Driving without a license is a big risk. Penalties vary depending on the circumstances that caused the lack of license:
- Increased insurance rates
- A $ 200 to $ 1,000 fine
- Condemnation on the driving record for three years
- Demerit points
- Possible six months in jail
It is important to note that if you have a driver’s license, were stopped for a traffic violation, and then realized that you forgot your driver’s license at home, you will receive a quote or warning. You will also need to prove showing your driver’s license at a later date. If you do not meet this requirement, the law assumes that you do not have a valid driver’s license, and you may suffer the consequences of this act.
