Operating Handheld Devices

Penalties For Operating Handheld Device

The hand-held wireless communication device charge covers any touching, holding, or using a hand-held wireless communication device (cell phone or tablet), for any reason other than to call 911, at any time while on the road in your vehicle—this includes while stopped at a red light.

The penalties for a hand-held device charge in Ontario are as follows:

First Conviction

  • A fine of $615, if settle out of court
  • A fine of up to $1000 if case taken to court
  • 3 demerit points
  • 3-day licence suspension

Second Conviction

  • A fine of $615, if settle out of court
  • A fine of up to $2000 if case taken to court
  • 6 demerit points
  • 7-day licence suspension

Third Conviction

  • A fine of $615, if settle out of court
  • A fine of up to $3000 if case taken to court
  • 6 demerit points
  • 30-day licence suspension

Novice drivers (those with G1, G2, M1 or M2) convicted of distracted driving face the same fines as fully licenced drivers, but won't receive any demerit points. Instead of demerit points novice drivers face longer suspensions:

  • a 30-day licence suspension for a first conviction
  • a 90-day licence suspension for a second conviction
  • Cancellation of licence and removal from the Graduated Licensing System for a third conviction
