Driving with medical conditions

Laws came into effect on 1 March 2006 (commonly known as 'Jet's Law') which introduced a mandatory requirement for driver licence holders to report any long-term or permanent medical condition that may affect their ability to drive safely.

You can no longer wait until it is time to renew your licence to report a long-term or permanent medical condition that adversely affects your ability to drive safely. As soon as the conditions develops, or as soon as there is an adverse change to an existing condition, you need to take steps to inform the Department of Transport and Main Roads.
