Drivers Licence/Medical Certificates – COVID changes

Driving assessments and medical certificates aged 75 years and over

The Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) has changed medical certificate requirements for drivers aged 75 years and over. Effective immediately, senior Queensland drivers will not be required to visit their doctor or optometrist to obtain a medical certificate to meet senior driver licensing requirements.

Medical certificates that expired after 29 January 2020 will remain valid until six months after the COVID-19 emergency ends. If drivers have a ‘M’ on their current driver licence, they need to contact TMR on 13 23 80 or email mcr@tmr.qld.gov.au to have their current medical certificate extended.
