In most cases, you will keep your driver`s license until we receive medical, vision or assessment reports. However, if your medical condition poses an immediate risk to you or other drivers on the road, we may need to suspend your driver`s licence until we have reviewed the related medical reports. In some cases, additional medical information, such as technical reports or driving evaluations, may be needed to determine if your medical condition is affecting your ability to drive. Doesn`t the eye test just cover 1 eye and read the letters on the wall? If so, then to the IPM. The functions necessary for driving are cognitive, sensory (vision, touch) and motor (physical). Driving is a multifaceted perceptual motor that typically takes place in a complex environment where functions must work together. If your driver`s licence is cancelled or degraded due to a medical or visual impairment that affects your ability to drive safely, you may have the right to appeal. If the information does not reveal any immediate concern, the driver will retain their driver`s license and a medical/visual report will be requested. In 2018, the Canadian government amended the Criminal Code to introduce new impaired driving regulations that apply specifically to drugs and combinations of drugs and alcohol.

The changes included setting concentration limits for a number of drugs, including tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), when driving a vehicle. The amendments to the penal code also included the introduction of approved drug screening devices that, when used by traffic police officers, can help detect drug use. Impairment by drugs or a combination of alcohol and drugs can be detected by testing by police officers. A person who fails a physical coordination test may be subject to an administrative suspension and downward movement on the driver safety rating scale. An individual may be required to conduct a more detailed drug detection assessment and classification assessment conducted by a specially trained drug detection expert. If the conclusion is that a certain class of drugs is the cause of impairment, a sample of body fluid is necessary. If the suspected drug is confirmed, the driver can be charged with unfitness to drive, with equivalent penalties for driving under the influence of alcohol.

Once it is determined that medical standards are met, the driver`s physical condition may require regular medical and/or visual reports to monitor health and driving record. Conditions that need to be reported include those that affect vision, physical or cognitive abilities, as well as conditions that can cause a person to suddenly lose consciousness while driving, such as epilepsy, cardiac arrhythmias, and sleep disturbances.

Examples of these conditions include: Drivers` physical fitness follows the Substance Use Disorder standard, as recommended in CCMTA`s Medical Standards for Drivers. Individuals diagnosed with moderate to severe substance use disorder (including alcohol), as defined in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) published by the American Psychiatric Association, are not eligible to possess a license class unless the condition is in remission. Healthcare providers are advised to pay particular attention to high-risk criteria such as the presence of tolerance, use of the substance in hazardous situations and continued use despite significant health problems caused by the use of the substance.

Safe driving requires excellent physical and cognitive skills, as well as good judgment. Unfortunately, various medical conditions or impairments beyond your control can interfere with your driving and put you and others at risk on the road.
