To be found guilty of driving while disqualified, the Crown must prove that you were operating a motor vehicle anywhere in Saskatchewan. At the same time, you were disqualified due to a previous suspension or if your license has been suspended. You could still be guilty even if your previous suspension has expired. Those who are "disqualified" from driving are considered so until they take steps to reinstate their license.
Driving while disqualified is treated seriously by authorities. There is a possibility of being sentenced to jail for five years, probation for three years and fined $5000. In addition to your sentence, you will be disqualified from driving for at least one year for your first offence.
A.R.E. Law can minimize the consequences of being found guilty. Our goal is to negotiate a plea deal to a less severe charge.
