    Violating The Conditions Of Your License – Consequences Beyond The Ticket

    May 30, 2017  |  By:  Kevin Henderson

    Every driver’s licence issued in the Province of Ontario is subject to conditions. Whether you are an experienced driver, young driver, or motorcyclist, the conditions on your licence can impact everything from the type of vehicle to the time of day you are permitted to drive.

    Understanding the conditions on your licence is essential. Failing to comply with the terms of your licence can result in a fine of $200.00 to $1,000.00 under the Highway Traffic Act.

    While the fines associated with violating a condition of your licence can be significant, the consequences could be even more severe in the event you are involved in an accident.

    If you have an at fault collision while knowingly violating the conditions of your licence, your insurance company can deny you coverage for the collision. This means that you could be personally responsible for property damage and personal injuries caused by the collision.

    In the event that you are injured while violating the terms of your licence, it may impact your ability to sue an at fault driver, or to claim various accident benefits.

    The safest course of action is to be keenly aware of any conditions on your licence and to be sure to follow them. If you or a loved one have been injured in a motor vehicle accident, it is important to consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer to discuss your options.
