Driver Fitness Medical Guidelines

The National Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA) and the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) provides a driver fitness medical guideline booklet on its website. These guidelines are in place to help determine if a driver of any age is medically fit to drive a vehicle. This link provides information on a variety of health issues that could affect driving including vision, physical limitations, dementia and other medical disorders. This guideline also addresses health care providers and provides a list of guidelines that should be followed before allowing patients on the road.
