DIVISION IV
APPLICANT FOR A RESTRICTED LICENCE
35. The insurance contribution for the issue of a restricted licence authorizing only the driving of a road vehicle equipped with an alcohol ignition interlock device is the product obtained by multiplying the monthly insurance contribution set under the second paragraph by the number of months, including parts of months, less 1, to elapse between the date of issue of the licence and its expiry date.
The monthly insurance contribution is the quotient obtained by dividing by 12 the annual insurance contribution for the year of issue of the restricted licence. The annual insurance contribution is set at $113.80.
Decision 2015-06-17, s. 35.

37. For the issue of a restricted licence authorizing only the driving of a motorcycle to carry on the applicant’s principal means of livelihood, the insurance contribution payable is the sum of the insurance contributions for the months, including parts of months, during which the holder is authorized to drive, except for the last month.
The insurance contribution for a month corresponds to the percentage, as determined in the second paragraph of section 15, of an amount equivalent to the annual insurance contribution provided for in section 13, based on the year of issue and the classes of the restricted licence and on the last total number of demerit points used to calculate the insurance contribution paid or payable for the holder’s previous licence.
Decision 2015-06-17, s. 37.
38. For the issue of a restricted licence bearing one or more of classes 1 to 5 and one or more of the licence classes authorizing the driving of a motorcycle, but authorizing only the driving of a road vehicle covered by those classes to carry on the driver’s principal means of livelihood, the insurance contribution payable is the sum of the following amounts:
(1)  the insurance contribution calculated under section 36;
(2)  the insurance contribution calculated under section 37, except that the total number of demerit points to take into account for the calculation may not be greater than 3 points.
Decision 2015-06-17, s. 38.
39. An amount is subtracted from the insurance contribution payable by a person for the issue of a restricted licence in accordance with the second and third paragraphs, if that person did not request the reimbursement of part of the insurance contribution paid for the previous licence although entitled to do so.
If the previous licence was a probationary licence, the insurance contribution calculated under the second paragraph of section 34 is subtracted from the amount calculated for the issue of the restricted licence.
If the previous licence was a driver’s licence, the insurance contribution paid for the months, excluding parts of months, between the date of revocation of the previous licence and the payment due date of the sums referred to in the first paragraph of section 93.1 of the Highway Safety Code (chapter C-24.2) had the licence not been revoked, is subtracted from the amount calculated for the issue of the restricted licence.

DIVISION V
REIMBURSEMENT OF INSURANCE CONTRIBUTIONS
40. A person whose licence is cancelled at the person’s request or whose licence is revoked or suspended, except for a learner’s licence or a driver’s licence bearing only class 8, is entitled to reimbursement, on request, of part of the insurance contribution paid, as are the person’s heirs and legatees, according to the rules for reimbursement established
(1)  in sections 41 and 42, for a licence bearing
(a)  one or more of classes 1 to 5 and one or more motorcycle classes;
(b)  one or more motorcycle classes that do not bear classes 1 to 5;
(2)  in the Regulation respecting licences (chapter C-24.2, r. 34) by replacing the monthly duties covered by those rules by the monthly insurance contribution applicable to the period for which the reimbursement is to be made, for a licence bearing one or more of classes 1 to 5 and 8, and not bearing motorcycle classes.
For the purposes of subparagraph 2 of the first paragraph, the monthly insurance contribution is the quotient obtained by dividing by 12 the annual insurance contribution provided for in section 13 based on the insurance contribution payment due year, the licence classes and the total number of demerit points used in calculating the insurance contribution paid. Despite the foregoing, in the case of a restricted licence, the monthly insurance contribution is the insurance contribution calculated under the second paragraph of section 35 or the second paragraph of section 36, as the case may be.
Decision 2015-06-17, s. 40.
41. The amount of the reimbursement of the insurance contribution paid for a licence bearing one or more of the classes authorizing the driving of a motorcycle and not bearing classes 1 to 5 is the sum of the insurance contributions for the months, excluding parts of months, between the date of the event giving entitlement to the reimbursement and the expiry date of the period during which the holder is authorized to drive. The insurance contribution for a month is calculated by applying the percentage determined in section 15 to the amount of the annual insurance contribution provided for in section 13, according to the insurance contribution payment due year, the licence classes and the total number of demerit points used in calculating the insurance contribution paid.
Decision 2015-06-17, s. 41.
42. The amount of the reimbursement of the insurance contribution paid for a licence bearing one or more of classes 1 to 5 and one or more motorcycle classes is the sum of the following insurance contributions:
(1)  the product obtained by multiplying the monthly insurance contribution by the number of months, excluding parts of months, between the date of the event giving entitlement to the reimbursement and the expiry date of the period during which the holder is authorized to drive; the monthly insurance contribution is the quotient obtained by dividing by 12 the annual insurance contribution provided for in section 13 based on the insurance contribution payment due year, licence classes 1 to 5 and the total number of demerit points used in calculating the insurance contribution paid;
(2)  the sum of insurance contributions for the months, excluding parts of months, between the date of the event giving entitlement to the reimbursement and the expiry date of the period during which the holder is authorized to drive; the insurance contribution for a month is calculated by applying the percentage determined in the second paragraph of section 15 to an amount equivalent to the annual insurance contribution provided for in paragraph 1 of section 13 for motorcycle classes, according to the insurance contribution payment due year and the total number of demerit points used in calculating the insurance contribution paid and related to the motorcycle classes.
Decision 2015-06-17, s. 42.
43. The holder of a licence bearing one or more of classes 1 to 5 and one or more of the classes authorizing the driving of a motorcycle, except for a learner’s licence, who requests the cancellation of classes 1 to 5 or whose classes 1 to 5 have been suspended, is entitled, on request, to reimbursement of part of the insurance contribution paid.
The amount of the reimbursement is the product obtained by multiplying the monthly insurance contribution by the number of months, excluding parts of months, between the date of the event giving entitlement to the reimbursement and the expiry date of the period during which the holder is authorized to drive; the monthly insurance contribution is the quotient obtained by dividing by 12 the insurance contribution provided for in section 13, based on the insurance contribution payment due year, licence classes 1 to 5 and the total number of demerit points used in calculating the insurance contribution paid.
Decision 2015-06-17, s. 43.

The amount of the reimbursement is the sum of the insurance contributions for the months, excluding parts of months, between the date of the event giving entitlement to the reimbursement and the expiry date of the period during which the holder is authorized to drive; the insurance contribution for a month is calculated by applying the percentage determined in section 15 to an amount equivalent to the annual insurance contribution provided for in section 13, based on the insurance contribution payment due year, the licence classes authorizing the driving of a motorcycle and the total number of demerit points used in calculating the insurance contribution paid and related to the motorcycle classes.
Decision 2015-06-17, s. 44.
CHAPTER IV
ROUNDING OFF AND INDEXATION OF INSURANCE CONTRIBUTIONS
45. Where the amount of an insurance contribution has more than 2 decimals, only the first 2 digits are retained and the second digit is increased by one unit if the third digit is greater than 4.
Decision 2015-06-17, s. 45.
46. Beginning in 2017, the insurance contributions set in the first paragraph of section 4 and in sections 13, 29, 30 and 35 are indexed on 1 January of each year.
The indexation provided for in the first paragraph includes the indexation in 2017 of the insurance contribution set in subparagraph b of paragraph 4 of the first paragraph of section 4 for the year 2017.
However, the insurance contribution set in subparagraph b of paragraph 15 of the first paragraph of section 4 for the year 2017 is not indexed, and the insurance contribution set in that subparagraph for the year 2018 is not indexed in 2017 or in 2018, but is indexed beginning in 2019.
Decision 2015-06-17, s. 46.
47. Beginning in 2016, the insurance contributions set in sections 8, 9, 10, 17 and 27 are indexed on 1 January of each year.
Decision 2015-06-17, s. 47.
48. An insurance contribution is indexed by multiplying the amount to be indexed by the ratio between the current year’s Consumer Price Index and the preceding year’s index.
If the amount obtained pursuant to the first paragraph has more than 2 decimals, only the first 2 digits are retained and the second digit is increased by one unit if the third digit is greater than 4.
Decision 2015-06-17, s. 48.
49. The Consumer Price Index for a year is the yearly average computed on the basis of the monthly Consumer Price Index in Canada established by Statistics Canada for the 12 months preceding 1 September of the year preceding the year for which the Index is computed.
If, on 23 September of a year, the data provided by Statistics Canada are incomplete, the Société may use the data available at that time to establish the Consumer Price Index.
If Statistics Canada uses a new method to compute the monthly Consumer Price Index, the Société modifies the computation of the indexation based on the change in the monthly Consumer Price Index from 1 January of the year following the change of method.
If the yearly average computed on the basis of the monthly Consumer Price Index includes more than one decimal, only the first digit is retained and it is increased by one unit if the second digit is greater than 4.
If the ratio between the Consumer Price Index for the current year and that for the preceding year includes more than 3 decimals, only the first 3 digits are retained and the third digit is increased by one unit if the fourth digit is greater than 4.
Decision 2015-06-17, s. 49.
50. Despite sections 46 and 48, the annual insurance contribution payable to retain the right to operate a combustion engine motorcycle with a cylinder displacement of more than 125 cm3 but not exceeding 400 cm3 or an electric motorcycle with a nominal output of more than 11 kW but not exceeding 35 kW, where payment of the insurance contribution is due in 2017, may not be greater than $378.71.
Decision 2015-06-17, s. 50.
51. The amount to be indexed as of 2018 for motorcycles referred to in section 50 is the amount obtained by applying sections 46, 48 and 49 without taking into account the maximum amount of insurance contribution set in section 50.
Decision 2015-06-17, s. 51.
52. The Société publishes the insurance contributions indexed each year in Part 1 of the Gazette officielle du Québec.
Decision 2015-06-17, s. 52.
