Under the Voluntary Reporting component of the At-Risk Driver Program
, family members, friends, law enforcement agents, social service providers and others may voluntarily report an unsafe driver to DMV. Note: The voluntary reporting system may be utilized by medical professionals that are not required to report under the program and those who have patients that do not yet meet the mandatory reporting threshold of severe and uncontrollable issues. When to Report
A report may be made based upon the presence of a medical condition or observed driving behaviors. Note: Beginning January 1, 2014, physicians and health care providers are immune from civil liability under the non-mandatory (voluntary) reporting program. The immunity clause only covers physicians and health care providers reporting a patient. It does not cover individuals outside the health care profession who report under DMV's non-mandatory reporting program.
How to Report
Reports may be filed using a Driver Evaluation Request
(Form 735-6066), which can be downloaded or printed from this web site using your browser's "Save As" and "Print" options, or obtained from a DMV office
. Voluntary reports may also be submitted to DMV on an agency's or organization's letterhead, as long as it contains the same information. Note: DMV will not accept anonymous reports, however, you may ask DMV to keep your name confidential
When filling out the form or writing a report on professional letterhead, be as thorough as possible. Describe any medical conditions that interfere with operating a motor vehicle, as well as any unsafe driving behaviors that you have observed. If possible, recount how driving ability has declined over time or as a medical condition has progressed.
Voluntary reports may be submitted by mail
or in person at a DMV office. After Reporting
Depending on the type of information reported, DMV may immediately suspend an individual's driving privileges. However, a driver will normally be given 60 days to take and pass a vision, knowledge, and drive test. In some cases, a driver may be asked to provide current medical information.
