In Ontario, doctors are required to report the name, address, and medical condition, of drivers they believe pose a danger.
A doctor must report to the Registrar of the Ministry of Transportation, where, in his medical opinion, the driver suffers from a condition that may make it dangerous for the person to operate a motor vehicle. The responsibility is found in s. 203(1) of the Ontario Highway Traffic Act.
Regulations require that a driver’s licence applicant or holder must not:
(a) suffer from any mental, emotional, nervous or physical condition or disability likely to significantly interfere with his or her ability to drive a motor vehicle of the applicable class safely; or
(b) be addicted to the use of alcohol or a drug to an extent likely to significantly interfere with his or her ability to drive a motor vehicle safely.
The Registrar of Motor Vehicles makes the decision whether to suspend a driver’s licence.
