III. Other ways to lose your licence
Medical suspension

By law, all doctors must report the names and addresses of everyone 16 years or older who has a condition that may affect their ability to drive safely. For example, an addiction to alcohol or drugs is a condition that affects your ability to drive. Doctors report this information to the Ministry of Transportation and it is not given to anyone else. Your driver’s licence may be suspended until new medical evidence shows that the condition does not pose a safety risk.
