Commercial Drivers Medical

Drivers of commercial vehicles such as trucks, buses, taxi, uber, and vehicles carrying dangerous goods must meet certain medical standards to ensure public and personal safety.

Professional driving requires strong focus, excellent visual acuity, fast instincts, good judgement, and the ability to respond quickly. Hence, the physical capability of drivers are of utmost importance.

Commercial vehicle drivers are required to comply with legislation, and be certified as ‘fit to drive’, in accordance with the Assessing Fitness to Drive 2016 standards for commercial vehicle drivers, published by Austroads and the National Transport Commission.

Medical assessments must be carried out 3 yearly for commercial drivers below the age of 50, and annually for those drivers 50 and over.
