Helping You Successfully Navigate a PennDOT Driver Medical Evaluation

As an experienced defense attorney, I am intimately familiar with PennDOT’s driver safety requirements. Moreover, I know how to satisfy those requirements. I can help you navigate the sometimes-complicated process of a driver safety evaluation.

I work with your primary care physician, as well as a large network or medical specialists to help make sure you can keep or regain your license after a PennDot medical suspension or recall for medical reasons. In many cases, if you can show that you have corrected or controlled your medical condition by medication, surgery or other treatment, it is possible to get your license back (or have a restriction removed).

Conditions Related to PennDot Medical Driver’s License Recall

Medical conditions that physicians often report as affecting driving ability include:

  • Unstable or brittle diabetes or hypoglycemia
  • Heart disease-causing lack of coordination, confusion or fainting
  • Epilepsy or other conditions causing loss of consciousness
  • Dizziness or vertigo
  • Mental disorders causing delusions or hallucinations
  • Loss of the use of a joint, arm or leg
  • Vision problems (poor eyesight)
  • Use of drugs or alcohol which impair skill or functions
  • Other conditions likely to impair the ability to control and safely operate a motor vehicle

PennDOT’s evaluation is performed under the supervision of their Medical Advisory Board. The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) relies upon physician reporting to identify medically impaired drivers and patients who are at risk of unsafe driving due to a medical condition.

When PennDOT receives a report, they begin an evaluation process. Depending on the information they receive, they may add or delete restrictions on the person’s driving license, recall the driver’s license, restore the license, ask for more specific medical information, request a driver’s examination, or take no action.
