In Alberta, a driver’s licence can be suspended for several reasons. For example, suspensions can be imposed as a result of a legal judgment made based on your driving behaviour or if you have a medical condition which impairs your ability to drive. It is illegal to drive with a licence that has been suspended or disqualified and doing so could result in additional driving suspensions, a vehicle seizure, and fines.
