Right to Drive
Don’t I have the Right to drive?
No. The Highway Traffic Act (Ontario) speaks to this under Part IV Licenses, under Section 31 (Driver, Driving Instructor) of the Act.
Section 31. Driving a privilege:
The purpose of this Part is to protect the public by ensuring that,
(a) the privilege of driving on a highway is granted to, and retained
by, only those persons, who demonstrate that they are likely to drive safely;
(b) full driving privileges are granted to novice and probationary
drivers only after they acquire experience and develop or
improve safe driving skills in controlled conditions.
