§ 82.6. Additional examination.

 (a)  When additional exam is required. When a physician submits information indicating that the driver may have a condition which affects the ability to drive safely, but the Medical Unit has insufficient information to compare the patient’s condition with the Medical Advisory Board’s medical regulations, the Medical Unit requires the driver to have a physician complete additional medical examination forms or the driver may be required to complete a driver’s examination.

 (b)  Example. For example, the Medical Unit receives a report from an emergency room physician stating that an individual had a seizure. The report contains no other information regarding the condition. The Medical Unit cannot determine from that information whether or not the person has an uncontrolled seizure disorder. The seizure may have represented a single incident as a result of a transient illness, an allergic reaction or some other cause. The Medical Unit requires that the driver have a Convulsive Disorder Form completed.

 (c)  Failure to respond. If the driver does not respond to the Department’s examination requirement within 30 days, the driver is sent a notice of suspension for not complying with this requirement. This suspension is for an indefinite period of time until the driver complies with the Department’s requirement. This suspension may be avoided or restored upon receipt of the requested information.
