Assessing your medical fitness to drive

Our GP’s will assess your medical fitness to drive.

When making an appointment please advise our reception staff of the reason for your visit, so that an appropriate length appointment can be made for you.

When you attend your appointment, take with you a medical certificate for motor vehicle driver form (F3712). You can get a hard copy of this form at a transport and motoring customer service centre.

It is recommended that you also complete the health questionnaire on page 1 of the Private and Commercial Vehicle Driver’s Health Assessment form (F3195) prior to attending your appointment as this information will assist your doctor with undertaking their medical assessment.

Your medical fitness to drive will be assessed against medical standards that are the same across all Australian driver licensing jurisdictions.

There are 2 medical standards:

  • private vehicle driver standard
  • commercial vehicle standard.

You will be assessed against the standard of driver licence that you hold, or apply for and the purpose for which you drive, or plan to drive.
