Changes to impaired driving laws
Alberta’s impaired driving laws changed effective December 1, 2020. A new Immediate Roadside Sanctions program will keep our roads safer by providing serious and immediate consequences for all impaired drivers.
Read Freeing up police and courts to make Alberta safer for more information.
Your driver’s licence can be suspended if:
- you have a physical and/or medical condition(s) which adversely affects your ability to safely operate a motor vehicle
- you have failed to comply with a request for medical information
Driver Fitness and Monitoring will review your medical documentation and determine if your driver’s licence should be reinstated.
Your driver's licence may be reinstated with:
- one or more conditions
- one or more restrictions
- a reduced driver's licence term
Law enforcement may also issue a 24-hour suspension if you are suspected of driving while impaired by a medical and/or physical condition(s).
