18.104.22.168. In order to obtain a new licence, a person is exempted from the comprehensive assessment provided for in sections 76.1.2 and 76.1.4 if, between the date of the offence and that of the conviction, the person establishes by means of a health assessment under section 73 and paragraph 4 of section 109 that the person’s relationship with alcohol and drugs does not compromise the safe operation of a road vehicle corresponding to the class of licence concerned. However, the person must undergo an assessment to verify whether the status of the person’s relationship with alcohol and drugs has been maintained.
A health assessment that has not been completed by the date of conviction may be continued after that date with a view to obtaining an exemption under the first paragraph.
A person who fails the maintenance assessment provided for in the first paragraph must undergo the comprehensive assessment provided for in sections 76.1.2 and 76.1.4.
