Important Notice

This page is being updated. Meanwhile, as the information currently online may not be complete, we invite you to consult the French version. Thank you for your understanding.

Cancellation of a driver’s licence
A driver’s licence, probational licence or learner’s licence may be cancelled if the licence holder decides to stop driving. A refund may be obtained for any whole months remaining before the expiry date of the licence.

To cancel a driver’s licence, the licence holder should notify the Société de l'assurance automobile du Québec:

  • by phone (giving the information on the licence);
  • by mail (with a letter or payment notice);
  • in person at a SAAQ service outlet.

The Finding a SAAQ Service Outlet online service can be used to find a SAAQ service outlet.

Refund of a cancelled driver’s licence
A refund may be obtained for any whole months remaining before the expiry date of a driver’s licence or probational licence that is cancelled before expiry. No refund is made for a cancelled learner’s licence.

A refund for a cancelled licence can be requested in person at a SAAQ service outlet on presentation of the cancelled licence. If the licence fee was paid by pre-authorized bank instalments, the licence holder should ask the Société to end the instalments.
