Once a complaint is received, a complete file review will be conducted and a decision will be made as to what is required to determine fitness to drive.

The Registrar has the authority to require a person to submit to a medical or physical examination, and may place special conditions or restrictions on a driver’s licence or suspend driving privileges. These actions will only be taken where there are reasonable and probable grounds to believe that the person is a safety risk to him or herself or to the motoring public.

In accordance with Section 60.1 of the Traffic Safety Act, information received relating to unsafe drivers remains confidential and is not disclosed. As per Section 17 of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, the circumstances and/or actions surrounding the subject of your complaint will not be disclosed.
