This means that all drivers in WA (or those applying to drive) who have not already done so, are legally required to notify the Department for Planning and Infrastructure (DPI) of any permanent or long term medical condition that they suffer from that is likely to impair their ability to control a motor vehicle.
By the term "medical condition" the legislation refers to any medical condition, mental disorder or physical disability that may impair a person's ability to drive safely. This is also known as "Driving Impairment".
It also includes certain medical treatments that may impair a driver's perception, judgement, response time and reasonable physical capability.
It is an offence not to notify DPI. The penalty is $500.
