Who decides if I am safe to drive?

NZTA issues driver licences based on information it receives from a number of sources. Your own general practitioner (GP) oversees your overall health and manages any medical conditions, so they are in the best position to confirm to NZTA your overall medical fitness to drive safely.

Your doctor will also receive information from other health teams involved in your health and wellbeing, including a sleep service if you are referred to one or receiving treatment from one.
