Driving with a suspended license in Calgary is just not a good idea from a legal standpoint. This is considered a legal offence under the Criminal Code and Alberta has strict enforcement programs in place to prevent persons from operating a motor vehicle while disqualified. If you’re caught driving with a suspended license in Alberta, you may go to jail and/or face a large fine.
Additionally, your license will likely be suspended for an additional six months, and this new suspension won’t begin until your existing suspension ends. And what happens to the vehicle you were driving? Whether you own it or not, it’ll be seized and impounded for at least 30 days with all incurred towing and impound fees being the responsibility of the registered owner of the vehicle.
And what happens if you get involved in an accident driving while disqualified in Calgary? Your insurance will probably not cover the cost of any damages or injuries sustained during the accident, meaning you may be sued by the other driver(s) involved in order to pay for said damages.
