Graduated Driver's Licensing

The Graduated Driver's Licensing (GDL) Program is a Saskatchewan Government Insurance (SGI) initiative that requires new drivers to successfully complete all stages of the program in order to earn their Class 5 driver's licence. You can find details about the program on SGI's website.

There are a variety of sanctions SGI may choose to place on a new driver's licence when they feel it is in the best interest of public safety. These can include such things as suspensions or additionally required driving courses.

If you are affected by a decision made by SGI under the GDL program, you may choose to file an appeal with the Highway Traffic Board (HTB). You cannot appeal a decision made by SGI to extend your program end date.

To schedule an appeal hearing with the HTB, call 1-855-775-8336.

What to Expect at the Hearing:

  • Your hearing will be conducted in person, scheduled during the day, and take place in Regina or Saskatoon.
  • The hearing will take about 30 minutes.
  • You will appear before three board members.
  • The board members will consider your SGI driver information; 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 email or by mail if an email is not available, within a week of your hearing about the HTB's decision.
  • The decision is binding and cannot be appealed.
