The Driver Improvement Program is a Saskatchewan Government Insurance (SGI) initiative. The goal of the program is to increase public safety by monitoring the records of Saskatchewan drivers and taking action against drivers who have a high number of traffic or at-fault convictions. The Driver Improvement Program is separate from the Safe Driver Recognition program and does not affect the cost of your vehicle insurance. You can find details about how the program works on SGI's website.
If you are affected by a decision made under the Driver Improvement Program you may be able to file for an appeal with the Highway Traffic Board (HTB).
Penalties You Can Appeal:
- Defensive Driving Course
- Driver Improvement Training
- Licence suspensions
Penalties You Cannot Appeal:
- Program information letter
- Warning letter
- Driver Improvement interview request

To schedule an appeal hearing with the HTB, call 1-855-775-8336.
What to Expect at the Hearing:
- Driver Improvement Program hearings are informal, conducted in person, scheduled during the day, and take place in Regina or Saskatoon.

- The board members will consider your SGI driver information, and assessments, reviews, and reports from driver improvement workshops and interviews.
- The board members will ask you questions about the action taken by SGI against your licence; measure the risk to public safety against the details of your suspension; and make a decision that is in the public's best interest.
- Following your hearing, members of the HTB can maintain, alter, or reverse SGI's penalty.
- You will be notified by mail within a week of your hearing about the HTB's decision.
