Driving Medicals

Driving Medical Assessments

We offer medical appointments for all aspects of commercial driving, including Uber, as well as private driving. Your driving safety and capability start with the doctors at Narangba Station Medical Centre.

Uber Driving Medical Assessment

Wondering how to become an Uber Driver?

Start by completing a Driver Authorisation application.
There are two different forms. Complete the relevant form for you and bring it with you to your medical appointment:

  • For first time applicants, download and complete the ‘Driver Authorisation New Application Form’.
  • For drivers wanting to renew their application, download and complete the ‘Driver Authorisation Renewal Form’.

Once you have completed your Driver Authorisation application, it’s time to book in your uber medical assessment with us. You can book online 24/7 by clicking here.
The medical assessment will cost $176.00 inc GST. Unfortunately, due to this being work related, there is no Medicare rebate for this consult.
Don’t forget to bring your Driver Authorisation application with you to your appointment.
Once you have your Driver Authorisation application form and your medical assessment, you can submit your application to your closest Department of Transport. It typically takes 2-3 weeks for this to be approved.
It’s a good idea to keep a copy of these forms for yourself. Uber will also require a copy.

Commercial Drivers Licence Medicals

Commercial Drivers Licence Medicals are routinely carried out by all of our doctors at the centre.

If you hold a class MC licence (road train or B-double multi-combination), you need to have regular medical reviews.

Commercial Drivers Licence Medicals are not covered by Medicare; however, we will provide you with a tax invoice for your records.

Private Licence Medicals

Queensland Department of Transport needs to ensure that all drivers are medically fit and competent to drive. If you’re an older driver, or you have a medical condition, you may be asked to have regular medical tests.
Private Licence medicals are required to be completed once reaching 75 years of age. They are also required if you develop a permanent or long-term condition which may affect your ability to drive safely. If you are uncertain about your medical condition and the impact it may have on your ability to drive safely, we recommend that you consult your doctor.

Age-Based Medical Reviews
When you reach 75 years of age, you’ll need to have a medical review every year to keep your licence. This is required even if you have a three- or five-year licence. Queensland Department of Transport will send you a form around eight weeks before your birthday, for your doctor to complete.

Injuries, Illnesses, and Medical Conditions
You’re required by law to inform Queensland Department of Transport of any long-term injury, illness, or medical condition which may affect your ability to drive safely. If you’re involved in a crash and it’s found that your health condition was a contributing factor, you may be prosecuted and your insurance may not be valid.

Various medical conditions can affect your ability to drive safely, for example:

  • Blackouts, fainting or other sudden periods of unconsciousness
  • Vision problems
  • Heart disease or stroke
  • Epilepsy
  • Sleep disorders
  • Diabetes
  • Psychiatric disorders
  • Age-related decline
  • Dementia
  • Seizures
  • Alcohol or drug dependency

Usually, this doesn’t mean that you can’t drive at all, but you may need to provide a satisfactory medical report before you can apply for, or renew, your licence. In some cases, you may also be required to pass a driving test
