Some people have, or may develop, cognitive or functional impairments, that could affect their driving ability. The At-Risk Driver Program was created to help prevent injury or death by impaired drivers.
Most medical professionals are required to report drivers who can no longer drive due to impairment. See the At-Risk Driver Program rules for more details:

reporting an unsafe driver.
You must report a patient if their impairment becomes severe and uncontrollable. You must notify DMV even if the patient voluntarily agrees to give up driving.
Oregon Administrative Rules describe the impairments that must be reported to DMV. It also explains how to see if the impairment affects driving.
If your patient's impairment doesn’t meet the severe and uncontrollable threshold, but you feel they should be retested or shouldn’t drive, use the Driver Evaluation Request.
Mandatory reports must be submitted using the Mandatory Impairment Referral Form. It can be downloaded or ordered in bulk for no charge.
Note: Please do not mail a form that has already been faxed.
DMV does not allow reports to be filed via internet or email.
You have immunity from civil lawsuits if you are a health care provider.
DMV will not accept anonymous reports. You can ask that your name be kept confidential. DMV must provide your name if it is required for a hearing or trial.
A patient can take steps to get their license back. You can ask about the status of a report by contacting DMV's Driver Safety Unit at 503-945-5083.
