There are many illnesses, diseases and disabilities that can affect your driving.
You may need to provide a current Medical Certificate providing the details of your condition or disability, stating that you’re fit to drive (e.g. for diseases such as epilepsy, arthritis, sleep disorders, blackouts, diabetes etc.).
You’re required to inform RMS of any medical condition or disability that may affect your driving. You must also report if a medical condition that may affect your driving develops while you hold a licence.
If you have a medical condition, you should talk to a doctor about how it might affect your driving.
Dementia and old age will gradually reduce a driver’s ability to drive safely. Family members, friends or doctors should consider alternative transport, especially for hazardous trips.
