Instead, I chose to sit out the one year period and re-apply for my license after 1 year in August of 2013.
In August I took the assessment in Bracebridge and was told that I needed to take the one day education workshop on Oct 26/2013 in Barrie. During this Education Work-Shop I was then informed that I have a six month follow-up this would take me to April of 2014 followed by a one year Ignition Interlock period, this takes me to April of 2015.
This is so ridiculous that no one believes me when I try to explain my predicament. How can a one year sentence turn out to be 3 years.?
If a person doesn't qualify for Stream A (the 90 day absolute prohibition period), then they might qualify for Stream B (180 days absolute), or no stream at all. The time frames for qualifying and what steps of the Back on Track program you must take (i.e. just education or therapy or both!) also differ. As I've stated, its extremely complex and confusing---its very specific to YOUR situation, so generic answers are almost useless since they'll likely only confuse you more!
Bottom line: either call up your lawyer to get specific clarification or visit a courthouse to talk to a duty counsel about explaining all of this to you. Best of luck!
I was convicted 2006 in Ontario. Didn't bother with Back on Track. Didn't want to get my licence back.
It's now 2014 and I've been offered a very well paying job in Northern Quebec. Problem is I'll need a licence. Can I do a remedial program in a province other then the one I was convicted in?
I've been trying to find info on this for weeks now.
Any insight would be appreciated.
