Every person who drives a motor vehicle or street car on a highway while his or her driver’s licence is suspended, under an Act of the Legislature or a regulation made thereunder, is guilty of an offence and on conviction is liable,
- for a first offence, a fine of not less than $1,000 and not more than $5,000; and
- for each subsequent offence, a fine of not less than $2,000 and not more than $5,000,
- or imprisonment for a term of not more than six months, or to both.
Driving while suspended is a serious charge in Ontario with severe penalties including jail. The charge can affect your livelihood, insurance rates and ability to work.
