Medical forms and fact sheets

Forms

Health professionals can now submit fitness to drive reports online, making the process quicker and easier.

Health professionals  who are unable to access the online medical report can download a paper version of the eyesight, medical or psychiatric report to make a report to VicRoads about fitness to drive.  These report forms are also found on the Completing a Medical Review Report page. 

Fact sheets for drivers

The VicRoads fact sheets provide information about how common medical conditions impact driving, as well as special considerations for older road users. Separate fact sheets describe how the Medical Review process works, and how on-road tests are conducted.

Ageing and safe driving

Older drivers are more vulnerable to being injured or killed in a car crash. This is because our bodies become frailer as we age and less able to withstand the physical impact of a crash. In addition, some health conditions and physical changes are more common with aging and can have an impact on our driving ability.

Eventually we will all need to stop driving. The ideal approach to retiring from driving is to gradually transition from regular driving, to using alternative transport options.

Your car and your safety

Choose the right car for you. The most important thing when buying a car is the vehicle's ability to protect its occupant as well as other road users.  In general, its best to buy the newest and largest car you are comfortable with and can afford, and to consider the safety features that are offered.
