  • Have ever suffered from epilepsy or alcoholism.
  • Are taking drugs or medication on a regular basis which would be likely to make a person an unsafe driver.  

The Driving Licence Medical Report must be completed by a registered medical practitioner and the applicant must sign the form in their presence. At Hazelhill Family Practice we have extensive experience of completing these Driving Licence Medical Report forms and can go through the details with any of our patients who may require additional information.  

Once completed the person applying must submit their application to the National Driver Licence Service within one month of it being signed by the medical practitioner.  

The Driving Licence Medical Report Form can be downloaded on the Hazelhill Family Practice website. We are happy to help any patients to complete this form, if required. Completed forms should be submitted to the National Driver Licence Service.
