§ 82.1. Medical program.

 (a)  Scope/minimum standards. Drivers in this Commonwealth shall meet minimum standards to be qualified to drive. The medical program balances public safety with the individual’s need for independence and autonomy.

 (b)  Medical Advisory Board. Medical standards are developed in conjunction with the Medical Advisory Board to insure that the Commonwealth does not restrict the independence and autonomy of the individual driver. At the same time, the Medical Advisory Board’s standards are designed to identify and recall the driving privilege of the individuals who represent an appreciable safety risk.

 (c)  Physical examination and medical reporting. The driver’s first interaction with the medical program begins with the physical examination necessary for the issuance of the learner’s permit. In addition, the Department administers a medical reporting program which includes reports from the medical community and reports from others.
