(F) Medical Aspects of Fitness to Drive [18 July 2003]

Pre-existing ill health makes only a relatively small contribution to road accidents. However declaration or assessment of medical fitness is part of the licensing process and advice from clinicians informs drivers on whether they can safely drive. This programme aims to improve the quality of evidence underlying both licensing decisions and medical advice to ensure that risks to road safety are minimised while drivers are not unnecessarily restricted.
