The Medical Review Unit is responsible for protecting the motoring public by monitoring drivers diagnosed with medical conditions that may affect their ability to safely operate a motor vehicle. The Unit holds hearings that give drivers an opportunity to appear in person to contest license cancellations and restrictions.
Hearings are held in Raleigh one week per month. NCDMV provides consulting and case review fees for participating physicians and reimburses travel expenses according to state guidelines.
Participation on the NCDMV Medical Review Board provides an opportunity to work with professionals who are passionate about striking the appropriate balance between the privilege to drive and the safety of all who use our roadways. The program may be of particular interest to physicians who have an interest in the care of North Carolina’s senior citizens.
