Q. I am taking medication; can this affect my license?
A. DMV is
prohibited from suspending your license based only on the medication you are taking. Ask your doctor if you should be driving while on that medication. Driving while impaired by a controlled substance is illegal even if you have a prescription.
Q. How will I know that I've been reported and what will happen?
A. You will get a letter telling you what will be required. When reports are accepted, retaking DMV tests or providing medical information is often required. If the information shows you may be a safety risk, DMV will immediately suspend your license.
Q. How do I get the medical report form I need to take to my doctor?
A. If one is required, it will be included with the letter telling you what is required. If you need another one at a later time, request one from Driver Specialty Services: 503-945-5083.
There is no blank form available as these forms are prepared individually for each driver.
Q. What if my condition improves after my license is suspended?
A. To find out what you need to do to get your license back, contact Driver Specialty Services: 503-945-5083.
Q. Can my license be revoked due to a diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease?
A. DMV is
prohibited from canceling or suspending a license based only on a diagnosis.
