Safe Driver Recognition

It is a criminal offence to alter a photo ID card or the driver’s licence paper certificate in any way. SGI can suspend a driver’s licence if it is believed an individual has used an altered ID or has loaned their ID for fraudulent purposes.

Who can appeal?
If you have been affected by a decision made with regards to misuse of an ID, you can appeal to the Board.

What am I appealing?
You are appealing the allegation that you misused a driver’s licence or photo ID or that you were in possession of an altered ID.

What to expect at the hearing
You will appear in-person before three Board members. The hearing is informal, scheduled during the day and will take approximately 30 minutes of your time.

The Board panel will:

  • ask you questions regarding the action taken by SGI against your driver’s licence;
  • measure the risk to public safety versus the impact on your suspension; and
  • make a decision on what is in the public’s best interest.

The HTB can either maintain, alter or reverse SGI’s decision. After the hearing, a letter will be sent to you by mail within one week advising you of the HTB’s decision. Decisions reached by the HTB with regards to your appeal are final and binding.
