DUI charge

Recently I got my first DUI, I got my license suspended for 24 hours along with my car impounded. I was just wondering how long this will stay on my driver's license for? And how badly will it affect my insurance? Thanks

Just a heads up.. You might get a notice of intent to prohibit in the mail from the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles telling you that your license will be suspended.

Thanks, do you know how long it may take to receive this in the mail?

It will affect ur insurance royally... You will most likely get a letter of intent to prohibit and to have the interlock device installed... Interlock installation fees and recalibration will be tacked on ur yearly insurance as far as I know...

The amount of misinformation in this thread is surprising, i wish i could fail people.

First of all this will not affect your insurance at all. So dont worry about that

Second, this will basically stay on ur record forever like anything accident, speeding ticket ect. It doesnt go away but it doesnt affect u either.

If u still have your N licence then you should be expecting a letter from the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles to be suspended from driving for like 3 months, If you dont have an N than u dont have to worry about that. Unless u have had many traffic violations in the past, IMO 5-6 violations coupled with this 24hr.

Now the confusing part is that u got a 24hr Prohibition, they rarely ever hand theses out anymore. But dont worry its actually the lesser of all the other charges u could of gotten. Im gonna go out on a limb and say that you didnt blow a fail, you didnt even blow a warning, you blew only abit where the cop found u unfit to drive your vehicle home. So all you gotta do is pay the towing charge, and get your licence back. I forgot how much is cost to get it back, you might not even have to pay to get it back, just pick it up, does it say at which police department where you can pick up ur licence on ur 24hr ticket?

Wow ricer... So misinformed


Under changes to the Motor Vehicle Act (MVA), drivers who provide a failing breath sample above 0.08 per cent BAC or refuse to provide a breath sample at the roadside will face an immediate, 90-day driving ban and a $500 fine. As well, they will have their vehicle impounded for 30 days. They may also face criminal charges.

Drivers caught once in the “warn” range (between 0.05 and 0.08 per cent BAC) in a five-year period will face an immediate, three-day driving ban and a $200 fine; a second time, a seven-day ban and a $300 fine; and a third, a 30-day ban and a $400 fine. Research shows that driving with a BAC in that range means a driver is seven times more likely to be in a fatal crash than if they have no alcohol in their body.

In addition, drivers who blow once in the “fail” range, or three times within five years in the “warn” range, will be required to participate in the rehabilitative Responsible Driver Program. They must also use an ignition interlock device, which tests a driver’s breath for alcohol every time they operate their vehicle, for one year.

“B.C.’s measures target impaired drivers more effectively than any Canadian jurisdiction has to date,” said Andrew Murie, CEO of Mothers Against Drunk Driving Canada. “We believe these major, escalating penalties will better support both deterrence and enforcement, save lives and prevent hundreds of injuries each year on B.C.’s roads. We encourage other provinces to study what B.C. is doing and follow its example.”

The new, roadside-issued, 90-day bans mean officers will no longer need to take drivers to the station for a full breath analysis in order to impose a driving ban longer than 24 hours.

That doesn't explain why he was given a 24hr suspension.

According to what you wrote he should have either gotten a 3 day suspension or a 3 month one. Unless the OP got his suspension dates wrong.

Usually as a novice you get a 24h... Car impounded and letter follows... Tbh I'm not sure about his situation... He would need to provide more info on the circumstances...
Did he blow? What the result was? What type of license does he have? And foremost we need the infraction he got charged for and how many... How long is the impound? And soooo on :S
Other ways we can keep guessing lol...

You guys seem to be forgetting, L/N has zero-tolerance for alcohol. OP hasn't mentioned whether he's N or whether he even took a breathalyzer, but putting it all together, my suspicion would be that he does still have his N, and the whiff of alcohol was all the cop needed to hand him a 24-hour without bothering with the breath sample.

Just my guess based on the very limited details OP has given...

^ that would be my guess as well, OP was under 0.05 (okay for class 5s) but has an N. If this is the case, OP doesn't have to worry about insurance and/or points and just needs to pay the ticket and impound lot to get the car back. My buddy went through this a few months ago

[edit] unless OP has previous record for tickets/DUI

Spoiler!

Gj, u copy and posted something that has no relevance to the OPs situation whatsoever. If he got a warn he would of received a 3day IRP, if he blew a fail he would of gotten a 90day ban. Obviously those didnt happen. Next time think about what ur gonna post before u give out garbage information like his insurance getting fucked royaly.

If he has to get the interlock device installed it will get tacked on his insurance... At the end of the day it's up to super intendant to decide what his fortune might be...

I gave him advice based on the information the OP gave us in his post. U gave him info that does not relate to his situation, plus u assumed he has an N. And the interlock isnt tacked onto his insurance. I dont know where u get ur info from. U pay a registraton fee, installation fee, a monthly monitoring fee and when ur done u pay to get in uninstalled, thats it.

Way too many assumptions, speculation and mis-information. The 24hr suspension, in most cases, is given only for an impairement by drug, or if a criminal charge of impaired driving is being saught, served along with a 90 day ADP, after 2 breath samples have been provided back at the detachment over 80mg%.

How about we wait for a proper story from the OP as to what happened. He was fairly vague in his posts.

Thanks for all the replies guys and to clear it up, I do have my class 5 driver's license. My suspension wasn't for alcohol, it was for drugs so I wouldn't be able to breathalyze.

And there you have it.

This will stay on your driving record for as long icbc/mvb keeps track of it, but it will go "away" after 5yrs when it comes to your driving abstract (for employment records and such). I can't comment on what icbc will do for insurance.

Except you can be criminally charged for possession if you have some left on you or in the car. Or dangerous op if you're driving crazy enough.

Or sued in civil court when you hurt someone or cause property damage.

Were you charged criminally? If not, then you likely won't receive a 90-day suspension in the mail. If yes, then you probably will.

Two 24-hour suspensions in one year then ICBC will charge you under the Driver Risk Premium.
