When you apply for a provisional license, you have to provide evidence that you have had a medical. You can only drive if you have had a medical for at least five years. Drivers who have had a medical before 1997 are exempt from having to have a medical while applying for a provisional license. Drivers under 40 who were issued a provisional license after 1999 must have a medical in order to renew their license.
Drivers under 25 with valid licences are exempt from having to have a medical. Drivers over 65 are exempted from having to have a medical while renewing their license. Drivers who have a medical from a non-approved provider can obtain a waiver by submitting D4 Medical proof that a medical was performed by an approved medical provider. Drivers who received their medical at age 45 or older can apply for a waiver from their local registrar if they wish to drive a category D1 for hire or reward vehicle.
Drivers who have been issued a medical from a provider approved by the registrar must submit the required fee to renew their driver’s license. Drivers who have a medical from a non-approved provider can submit proof that the provider is approved by the registrar in order to get a waiver from his/her local registrar.
