If you require a Medical Report to accompany your driving licence renewal/application, you will need to make an appointment to see the doctor.
Medical reports are required if you are applying for a learner permit or Driving Licence in any of the categories C1, C, D1, D, CE1, CE, DE1 or DE as well as for those over 70 years of age or suffering from certain disabilities or medical conditions. For further information www.ndls.ie
An eyesight report is also required for a first-time application for a learner permit* which the doctor can also complete for you during your appointment. Please note that it is necessary to present this report at the NDLS centre with your application within one month of completion by the doctor.
We can print the necessary forms at the surgery for you or they can be obtained from your local NDLS centre or downloaded from their website www.ndls.ie. If you are downloading the medical report form you must print it back to back. An eyesight report may be required when exchanging a licence or if you have previously worn glasses, for further information contact NDLS.
Please note, Driving Licence Medical and Eyesight reports are not covered under the GMS scheme.
