Medical Advisory Board

In order to develop the standards and guidelines used to assess safe driving, the Division works closely with a group of physicians with varying medical specialties.  This group of physicians is called the Medical Advisory Board.

The Medical Advisory Board meets at a minimum, once a quarter to discuss and maintain the guidelines. They make recommendations to the Division for updates to the medical guidelines and standards.

The Board is also responsible for hearing driver appeals concerning medical conditions regarding their driving privileges. If you wish to have a hearing with the Medical Advisory Board, please submit a written request to:
