Ontario Stunt Driving 30-Day Suspension – Part 3 – Is there a cost?

This is Jonathan Cohen, Partner at NextLaw.ca – Ontario’s dedicated Stunt Driving law firm.  This is Part 3 of my discussions on the 30-day roadside suspension as a result of a Stunt Driving charge in Ontario.  Here are links to the other 2 parts:

Let’s get started

You’ve recently been charged with Stunt Driving, and you are still in your 30-day roadside license suspension.  It’s confusing, stressful, and you have a lot of questions.  I get it.  The officer wasn’t your friend, and was not there to give you follow-up advice.  It’s not their job.  Their job is to charge you, and now it’s your job to figure this all out.

Good news.  I’m here to help.

What is the cost to get my license back after my 30-day suspension?

Out of this horrible ordeal, there is one element that should not cost anything – and that is getting your license back.  There should be no cost for getting back your license from Service Ontario.  Simply put, after the 30 days, you get a temporary license from Service Ontario, and they mail a new hard copy in the mail.  You have to make an appointment to visit them and bring all your documentation that you were given at the roadside charge.

I heard there was a reinstatement fee for my license?

In certain types of suspension, there is a reinstatement fee.  But for Stunt Driving in Ontario it is an “administrative suspension”.  The easiest way to think of this type of suspension is more of a “pause” on your license for 30 days, and after this period of time, your license will get “un-paused”. 

So, after all the expenses of paying for the 14 day impound and the loss of work or UBER that you are paying for the 30 days, there is actually this one part of your charge that has no cost at the present time.

After I get back my license, can i just start driving again?

Absolutely.  Out of suspension means out of suspension.  Once you get your license back after the 30 days, you can drive as though this never happened – until your charges are resolved in court.  There is nothing more you need to do after getting back your license, except start trying to figure out how to deal with your charges as your court date approaches.

So what are my next steps?

Now is the time to start thinking about how you want to deal with your charges as your court date approaches.  Book a meeting below, and I will help develop a court strategy that will save you from a 1-3 year license suspension, and all the other penalties that come along with an Ontario Stunt driving charge.

What is the 30-day suspension for Stunt Driving in Ontario?

The 30-day suspension is a immediate administrative suspension imposed by the Ontario Ministry of Transportation if you are charged with Stunt Driving in Ontario. This suspension is separate from any penalties or fines you may face if convicted of the charge in court. The 30-day suspension starts on the day you receive the Notice of Suspension and is effective immediately, regardless of whether you are driving or not.

How much does the 30-day suspension for Stunt Driving in Ontario cost?

The cost of the 30-day suspension for Stunt Driving in Ontario can vary depending on the circumstances of your case. However, there is a minimum administrative fee of $275 that must be paid to the Ontario Ministry of Transportation in order to have your license reinstated after the 30-day suspension period. Additionally, you may also face legal fees and other costs associated with defending against the Stunt Driving charge in court.
