Medical Review Committee


The Medical Review Committee provides an appeal process in cases where a person’s driver’s licence has been suspended, cancelled or refused on medical grounds.  In making their decisions, the Committee must ensure that in all cases the safety of the general public is considered above the exceptional hardship that will result if the suspension, cancellation or refusal to issue a licence remains in effect.


The Medical Review Committee conducts hearings and determines whether the standards, as set out by The Canadian Medical Association and The National Safety Code, are applied in a fair and equitable manner and whether an exception to the rule may be made. The Committee may confirm, quash or vary the decision of the Registrar of Motor Vehicles.
