Full text
202.0.1. If a person is convicted of an alcohol- or drug-related offence committed with a road vehicle and, during the 10 years before that conviction, was convicted at least twice of an alcohol- or drug-related offence or at least once of an offence relating to a high blood alcohol concentration level, for failing or refusing to comply with a peace officer’s demand in connection with alcohol or drugs, for failing to stop after an accident or for fleeing from a peace officer, the Société must
(1)  prohibit any road vehicle registered in the name of the person from being put or put back into operation; and
(2)  refuse to register any road vehicle in the person’s name except if, on the day the vehicle was transferred or leased or in the 10 preceding days, the transferor or lessor had obtained confirmation from the Société, pursuant to section 611.1, that there were no grounds under this Code to prevent the transfer or leasing of the vehicle.
The Société must take the same measures if it receives a notice of conviction for an offence relating to a high blood alcohol concentration level, for failing or refusing to comply with a peace officer’s demand in connection with alcohol or drugs, for failing to stop after an accident or for fleeing from a peace officer with respect to a person who was convicted at least once, during the 10 years before that conviction, of one of those offences or of an alcohol- or drug-related offence.
The prohibition on putting or putting back into operation a road vehicle registered in the name of a person described in the first paragraph and the refusal to register a road vehicle in the person’s name do not apply
(1)  if the vehicle must be driven by a third party on the person’s behalf as part of the person’s business operations; or
(2)  if the vehicle is equipped with an alcohol ignition interlock device approved by the Société, and the person has been issued a licence to drive a vehicle mandatorily equipped with such a device.
The measures prescribed in the first paragraph take effect as soon as the Société receives the notice of conviction from the clerk of a court of justice, and are lifted when the person obtains a driver’s licence that is not restricted to the operation of a road vehicle mandatorily equipped with an alcohol ignition interlock device approved by the Société.
