Administrative Driving Prohibition Reviews

Grant Gottgetreu has a success rate of more than 90% in favour of the clients for Administrative Driving Prohibitions.

If your client has been charged with driving over a 0.08 BAC or refusing to blow into an Approved Screening Device, they will normally first be issued a 90-day Administrative Driving Prohibition (ADP).

Like the 90-day Immediate Roadside Prohibition, you must file an Application for Review at an ICBC Driver Services Center within 7 days of being served the Notice of Prohibition if you intend to challenge the ADP a client’s behalf.

If a police officer in BC believes that a person’s blood alcohol content exceeded 80 mg in 100 ml after having driven within the proceeding 3 hours, or the person refused a demand for their breath under the Criminal Code, the officer will serve the person a Notice of Prohibition and take their licence.

There are two types of Review Hearings: Oral Reviews and Written Reviews. Grant is able to provide services for both types of review hearing.

For Oral Reviews, which are conducted over the phone, Grant can help inform your argument by painstakingly researching the facts of the case. Before the hearing, a report that was completed by the police is provided to lawyers. Grant is able to give an independent, unbiased analysis of the police report and can identify where any errors were made.

For Written Reviews, Grant provides an expert report based on certain facts and assumptions in that case. He knows the arguments and defences that sway adjudicators and having the weight of his opinion behind your case is very persuasive to an adjudicator.

Grant is able to succeed in the overwhelming majority of cases because he can show where the evidence fails to establish the person operated a motor vehicle, when the evidence doesn’t make sense, when the reasons for demanding a breath sample did not meet the standard of proof and was therefore unlawful, and when the breath tests results are unreliable.
