Keeping you Driving
Before referral for a driving assessment, it is imperative that a driver complies with medical standards.
In Ireland, a person diagnosed with a disability, illness, or medical condition that may affect their ability to drive safely, requires permission from a registered medical practitioner before beginning, returning or continuing to drive. Failure to do so may render their car insurance policy void.
Drivers are also required to report to the Driving Licensing Authority when they become aware of a health condition that may affect their ability to drive safely.
