What is IRP Law?

Under the British Columbia Decriminalized DUI Laws, the Immediate Roadside Prohibition (IRP) is an Administrative Driving prohibition or suspension within the Motor Vehicle Act. Upon receiving the Notice of Prohibition, someone has only 7 days to file an Application for Review form with ICBC Driver Services. After 7 days, your right to dispute is gone forever. 

We see this short time limit as being intentionally imposed by the government in order to make the dispute process difficult for drivers. As a team of experienced criminal defense and administrative lawyers, we believe these prohibitions, as well as the time limits around them for dispute, are unfair and flawed. As a result of these rules, police error and unreliability of devices, we maintain that many innocent drivers are unjustly issued roadside suspensions. 

Most IRP defenses are not obvious, and many drivers mistakenly believe their case is hopeless so they do not file an application for review. If you’ve been suspended, contact us immediately so we can discuss your options. You will then be equipped to make an informed decision about whether or not to proceed with an application for review. 

Let the Steele Law team help. With over 30 years of experience, our firm is known as one of the most respected and reputable in BC. 

Our Background in IRP Appeals

Back in 2012, Steele Law opened a second office in downtown Vancouver, BC; in 2018, we opened a third office in Kelowna, BC, so that our team can better serve our clients on the mainland.

That means that our team of trusted administrative lawyers helps clients across:

  • Victoria
  • Vancouver
  • Kelowna
  • Surrey

In addition to our myriad legal services, our team is committed to giving back to the communities in which we work and live. As such, we both participate in and support multiple local programs. Why? Because we believe in and enjoy giving back wherever we can!
