What you need to reinstate
Before you can get a new licence, you will need to:
Step 1: pay any outstanding fines.
Step 2: complete any court processes/court-ordered programs needed to clear the suspension.
Step 3: gather any documents that state that the suspension has been lifted (e.g., a Notice of Suspension letter, a medical letter, an affidavit).
Once a suspension is lifted, you can renew your driver’s licence.
How to get a new licence
To get a new driver’s licence, visit:
- a DriveTest centre
- the ServiceOntario College Park location in downtown Toronto
Bring original identification that verifies your legal name, date of birth and your signature.
$198 reinstatement fee (does not apply if your licence was suspended for a medical reason)
Plus applicable fees for the written test and road tests, if you need to take them.
If your full class licence has been suspended for more than one year, you need to take certain tests.
1-3 years suspended: you need to take an eye test.
3-10 years suspended: you need to take:
- a written knowledge test
- an eye test
- two road tests (G1 and G2)
- you can book your first road test as soon as you pass your knowledge and eye tests
- you can book your G2 road test, as soon as you pass your G1 road test
10+ years suspended: you need to re-apply as a new driver and re-take all required tests. You cannot fast-track and need to serve all mandatory waiting periods.
