>>>What happens if I am convicted of driving while disqualified?

A conviction for driving while disqualified is a serious criminal offence, and there is a wide range of sentences that can follow a finding of guilt for this charge. Because you are often breaching a term of probation after a finding of guilt for a prior criminal offence, jail sentences are common for this offence. If you are convicted of driving while disqualified, you can typically expect that the Crown will seek a jail term of at least 30 days or more. The maximum jail sentence for driving while disqualified is 5 years. It is important to know that the length of the driving prohibition and any other penalties that can accompany your sentence will increase for second, third, and subsequent offences.

In addition to a potential jail term, you will face a large fine that can go up to a maximum of $5000, and an additional term of suspension that will only begin running after the initial suspension ends. Further to this, the vehicle that you were driving at the time of the offence will be impounded for 30 days, even if it is not your vehicle. The towing and impound fees that will follow the seizure and impound of your vehicle will also all be charged to the registered owner of that vehicle.

Glowing Reviews From Our Clients

My career depended upon the successful resolution of my matter, and I couldn’t have been happier with the way Michael handled my case. He knew right away the best strategy to take to allow me to have my charges withdrawn, and was able to follow through as he promised, for a very reasonable cost. I would highly recommend this law firm.

S.A.

I would definitely recommend Michael Oykhman and his team. Not only were my charges dropped but the professionalism and empathy I was shown gave you confidence knowing someone was working just as hard as you would be to obtain the best possible result. For anyone looking for lawyer he is one of the best hands down.
