Chapter 9, Section D:|
Revised August 22, 2012
Once a customer has a Medical Action of any kind (except a VI1) on his/her license, a
current (new) Medical Report must be submitted each time the
customer renews or replaces his or her license. If there is a VI1, but
the driver passes the eye test, issue the license.
A Medical Report or Vision Report is only valid for half
the time period for which the license issued.
- John Doe was issued a four-year
license in 2007. A Medical Action was placed on his record for
Diabetes. In 2008, he has lost his license and is in your office to
obtain a replacement. Because the four-year term of Mr. Doe’s
license is less than half over (it has been less than two years
since his four-year license was issued) the Medical Report is still
valid. You can issue a new license without requiring a new Medical
- Mary Ann was issued a four-year
license with a Medical Action in 2005. In 2008 she lost her license.
Because Mary Ann's license is more than two years old, and more than
halfway to its expiry date, a new Medical Report will be required
before she can be issued a new, replacement drivers license.
- Frank is 77 years old and (because
he is over age 75) gets his license renewed every year. His current
license was issued in December 2007 and lost it in March of 2008.
Because Frank’s license is only for one year, his Medical Report is
only valid for six months. Fortunately for Frank, it has only been
three months, so his Medical Report is still valid and he can be
issued a replacement license. But, if he lost his license in June
2008, more than six months after issuance, he would have to get a
new Medical Report.
