When applying for a driver’s license, applicants will be asked about any physical or mental conditions that may potentially impair their safe operation of a motor vehicle or any medications (prescribed or over-the-counter), drugs or alcohol that may impair their driving 10 ability.
In certain instances, applicants must provide a Medical Report completed by a licensed physician verifying their medical ability to safely operate a motor vehicle. The report must be presented to the Driver Services facility personnel within 90 days from the date the physician signs it.
If a driver develops a medical condition that is likely to cause a loss of consciousness or any loss of ability to operate a vehicle safely, he/she must notify the Secretary of State’s office within 10 days of becoming aware of the condition. Failure to do so may lead to cancellation of the driver’s license and driving privileges
