    Default ALBERTA LICENCE SUSPENSIONS

    Originally posted by stybscelica
    Its and Administrative penalty if issued a letter from the motor vehicle branch. If he was suspended at court he would have had to Surrender his licence at court. GDL Learner Drive While unauthorized is a minimum 6 month suspension and he will remain as a GDL for an additional year. Hopefully that answers your question.

    Oh and by the way thereis no way of reversing an Administrative penalty without going through a hearing as indicated in the letter sent to your friend.
