What If I Lose My License But Continue To Drive?

If you drive while having a suspended licence, you can be charged under the Criminal Code with Driving While Prohibited as well as under the Highway Traffic Act with Drive While Suspended. The maximum punishment of Driving While Prohibited is 10 years imprisonment if the Crown proceeds by indictment, or 2 years less a day and/or a fine not exceeding $5000 if the Crown proceeds by summary conviction. If convicted under the Highway Act, you could face up to $5000 in fines and a term of imprisonment not exceeding 6 months.
