Medical Review

General Information

After being notified of your medical condition VicRoads will usually need to undertake a Medial Review. This helps to determine if your condition affects your ability to drive safely. The law states that you must report any medical condition that could affect your driving.

VicRoads will consider every case individually. When making a decision VicRoads will consult:

  • A Medical Report from your doctor
  • Assessing Fitness to Drive guidelines. These are available at
    and, when appropriate:
    • VicRoads Medical Advisers
    • Specialist Medical Reports
    • Eyesight Reports
    • Results of a VicRoads review Driving Test or Occupational Therapy Driver Assessment
    • Your treatment plan and ability to manage the condition
    • Reports from Police or other third parties.

Medical review results
A Medical Review may result in:

  • You retaining your Driver Licence or Learner Permit with no further action;
  • Being issued with a Conditional Licence or Conditional Learner Permit (eg. no night driving, driving with glasses) or the requirement to periodically submit Medical Reports
  • Suspension or Cancellation of your licence. It is possible to appeal these decisions.*

Guidelines for Occupational Therapy Driver Assessors
Since 1987, Victorian Legislation has recognised the role that occupational therapists play in driver assessments. Occupational therapy driver assessors play an important road safety role in assisting VicRoads to meet its responsibilities to ensure that all licence holders are safe drivers.

Occupational Therapy Driver Assessors provide a means to assess the ability of a physically or cognitively impaired person to drive safely. However, the responsibility for licensing rests with VicRoads.

These guidelines were developed to provide Occupational Therapy Driver Assessors with information about licensing, essential in dealing with clients involved in the Driving Assessment Process.

This guidelines aim to:

  • Assist Occupational Therapy Driver Assessors to promote responsible driving behaviour by their clients when assessing their ability to drive safely
  • Provide Occupational Therapy Driver Assessors with guidelines to follow when conducting an assessment.
  • Standardise the Driver Assessment process with respect to driver assessments, by documenting the expected practices, procedures, legislative framework and business rules under which Occupational Therapists operate
  • Provide the business rules and legislative framework under which VicRoads operates
  • Provide essential licensing information to Occupational Therapists in their role as Driver Assessors
  • Assist Occupational Therapy Driver Assessors to explain to clients what to expect in a Drive Assessment.

Follow-up reviews
VicRoads may review your case periodically (eg. yearly, five yearly) to ensure that your ability to drive safely has not changed.

* The decision to suspend, cancel or place conditions on a person's driver licence is considered on a case by case basis.
