Will my license be suspended as a result of my drinking and driving charges?

You will likely receive an automatic 90 day license suspension notice from the police when you are charged. You may not drive during this 90-day period. If you do, you could face new criminal charges.

License suspension is one of several consequences you may face if you are convicted of Over 80, Impaired Driving, or Sample Refusal. The length of the suspension varies depending on your existing criminal record and other factors, but in Ontario the period is typically at least one year long.
