February 9th, 2015

You may be aware that the Road Safety Authority (RSA) together with the National Programme Office for Traffic Medicine today launched a public consultation on Medical Fitness to Drive (MFTD) Off-Road and On-Road Assessment Guidelines. These Guidelines aim to inform the public and assist the many professionals and stakeholders involved in MFTD assessments to clarify the roles and pathways that are available to support medical fitness to drive decisions.

This consultation allows individuals and associations to give feedback on the draft standards for MFTD Off-Road and On-Road Assessment Guidelines. These Guidelines will in the future be published and implemented to support the delivery of consistent MFTD assessments and support complex cases where multiple professionals and services may be involved.
