You will have been served a Notice of Suspension at the time of your release. This document starts the Alberta Administrative Licence Suspension.
This suspension has two parts: an initial 90 day absolute suspension and a further 12 month suspension with the option of installing an ignition interlock device.
We strongly encourage anyone facing these charges to attend at the Registry and purchase an Application for Hearing to appeal their suspension.
You only have 30 days from the date of the offence to purchase and file an appeal of this suspension. This appeal is the only way to avoid the cumulative 15 month suspension and timing is critical to ensure you do not miss any potential defences.
