Visitor: I am very interested in having my records pardoned, however I have a couple of questions. I have not completed my Ignition Interlock Program (IIP), in fact I am in the process of writing a letter of exemption in hopes Driver Fitness and Monitoring will exempt me from this remedial program altogether.
My question is, will asking for a pardon at this time cause an issue? Or can a pardon even be asked for if I have not completed the IIP?
This my original DUI from 2014 and my last offence was committed in 2015. I have still to pay the $210.00 for the remainder of my fine (which I didn’t know about as I thought it was all cleared up when I went to jail).
I want to make sure that I have the best chance at success, so I just want to double check everything before we go ahead. I don’t want to waste your time or mine.
Pardons Canada: You are eligible for a pardon or record suspension for your DUI five years from the end of your punishment which includes the fine payment. Since you have not finished paying your fines your eligibility date cannot be calculated until you pay the fine. Then you will have to wait five years from your fine payment to be eligible for the pardon for your DUI.
