Fitness to Drive
It is critical that all drivers are medically fit to drive. Medical conditions causing lapses of attention or lack of control of a motor vehicle can have disastrous effects on you, your family, your friends or other road users.
If you have a medical condition that may affect your fitness to drive, or are taking medication that can affect driving, you should discuss this with your health professional.
There are a wide range of medical conditions, or combinations of medical conditions, that can affect your fitness to drive.
