Q&A - Just Received a Notice of Prohibition
I just received a notice of prohibition in the mail yesterday stating that I am being suspended from driving for 4 months due to my unsatisfactory driving recording and I must surrender my license. I have received 2 tickets in my 10 years of driving, however I still have my 'N', although I have been able to go for my full license for quite some time.
One ticket was for failing to yield to a vehicle (2 points) in June 2013, and a second ticket was recently in May 2015 for speed inside municipality (3 points). The first ticket I paid right away and the second I left past the 30 day period, thus rendering me guilty and now I am being prohibited from driving.
I am just wondering if there is any way that I may be able to cancel or work around this prohibition, as it will greatly affect my work and family life. I have heard other people talk about disputing their ticket and then going to get their full license before being found guilty to retain their driving privileges. Is this true or does it work? Is it too late for me to do something like this or are there things I can do (such as taking the bc safe driving course online) to cancel my prohibition?
I realize my fault for the driving infractions that have occurred and will definitely be more mindful when I am driving, however being stuck without a vehicle and resetting the N stage is something I would very much like to avoid. I would just like to know what my options may be before I look to reducing my prohibition.
