Commercial driver medical assessment

Also know as Fitness to Drive Assessments, a Commercial Driver Medical is conducted to increase safety on the road for both the driver and the public.

Driving a motor vehicle is a complex task involving perception, appropriate judgement, adequate response time and reasonable physical capability. Operating heavy vehicles adds additional demands associated with the vehicle itself, the responsibility to passengers, distances travelled and the demands of work schedules.

Drivers of a commercial vehicle are required to comply with legislation and be certified as ‘fit to drive’ in accordance with the National Medical Standard of Assessing Fitness to Drive. Cogent Thinking’s medical assessments are conducted in accordance to these standards.
