Don’t let a Driving Prohibition Stand in your Way – Get a Driving Lawyer

Have you been served with a 24-Hour Prohibition? Although it may not seem like a big deal to be prohibited from driving for a period of 24 hours, these types of driving prohibitions can nevertheless have significant consequences for British Columbian drivers. If you hold a class 7 “N” licence, a single 24-Hour Prohibition will likely result in a further prohibition of three months or more from the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles. Multiple 24-Hour Prohibitions can lead to lengthy prohibitions for all drivers as well as referrals to the Responsible Driver Program and Ignition Interlock Program. Such outcomes can cost you thousands of dollars, your reputation, and even your employment.

There are two types of 24-Hour Prohibitions in British Columbia: alcohol-related 24-Hour Prohibitions and drug-related 24-Hour Prohibitions.

24-Hour Prohibition for Alcohol

If you have been served with a 24-Hour Prohibition for alcohol, you have seven days to find a lawyer and apply for a review of your prohibition. If you do not act within this short time window, you will lose your right to appeal the prohibition.

24-Hour Prohibition for Drugs

Drivers who receive 24-Hour Prohibitions for drugs do not have the right to apply for an administrative review, but can still choose to fight their 24-Hour Prohibition in the Supreme Court of British Columbia.

Our legal team frequently encounters drivers who have received 24-Hour Prohibitions that were issued on dubious grounds. Many of these drivers, unfortunately, did not know that they had options to fight their prohibitions and ended up facing further prohibitions and financial consequences. If you have received a 24-Hour Prohibition, it is important that you act now because of the very short timelines to appeal.
