BACK ON TRACK – Ontario’s Remedial Measures Program for Impaired Drivers

Addictions and Mental Health Services-HPE is the local service provider for the Back on Track Remedial Measures Program.  We have an agreement with the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health to deliver this program.

What is the Remedial Measures Program?

For offences that take place on or after September 30, 1998, the Highway Traffic Act requires convicted impaired drivers or drivers with 2 or more administrative suspensions to successfully complete Back on Track, Ontario’s Remedial Measures Program, before their licences can be reinstated. Participants must pay a fee of $634 for convicted impaired drivers or $294 for administrative suspensions to cover the costs of the program.

If you are convicted of an impaired offence, you will receive a suspension notice from the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario (MTO). The notice includes your remedial requirement and the length of your licence suspension.

You should register for Back on Track a week (7 days) after your impaired conviction or administrative suspensions. It can take 11 months to complete the program.

Please note: If you do not complete all components of the Back on Track program within your suspension period, your licence will be further suspended.

If you fail any component, you will have to re-register, pay the program fee again and restart the program. This could result in a delay of eight months or more in reinstating your driver’s licence.

*Drivers convicted of an impaired driving offence committed on or after December 23, 2001 are subject to ignition interlock requirements. For more information about ignition interlock, please contact the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario at 1-800-387-3445 or 416-235-2999. For installation, please call ALCOLOCK 1-866-658-6374 or LIFESAFER 1-888-769–6080.
