How much a distracted driving ticket costs in BC, Canada

It's a $620 fine. That comes from the original $368 fine, plus a $252 ICBC driver penalty premium fee (see picture below). 

But keep in mind you may be able to lower your fine if you plead guilty in court.

*Now if you are an N or L driver, you also risk getting your license suspended... and that's a $281 fee. In this case, they'll send you a Notice of Intent to Prohibit and you can pay $100 to write an appeal letter. But this has a very low chance of succeeding, unless you pay a lawyer to write it.*


Finally, we didn't even mention that your car insurance cost may increase! In conclusion, don't drive distracted. It's not worth it.
