III. Other ways to lose your licence
Administrative driver's licence suspension (ADLS)
Your licence will be suspended immediately for 90 days:
  • If your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is more than 80 milligrams in 100 millilitres of blood (.08)
  • If you fail or refuse to give a breath, blood, oral fluid or urine sample when asked by police
  • If you fail or refuse to perform physical co-ordination tests or to submit to an evaluation when required by police

This suspension takes effect while you are still at the roadside or at the police station. It is an administrative suspension and is separate from any criminal charges or prosecution that may also take place.

An administrative monetary penalty is also imposed on drivers who receive an ADLS.
