NPs must now report medically unfit drivers

NPs have a new reporting requirement as a result of recent changes to the Highway Traffic Act, 1990.

NPs are now required to report to the Ministry of Transportation specific high-risk medical conditions, functional impairments and visual impairments in clients 16 years of age or older.

A list of the conditions that NPs must report can be found in Ontario Regulation 340/94, section 14.1 (3). Additionally, NPs can also report clients if they have or may have a condition that, in the NP’s opinion, make it dangerous for them to drive.

To submit a report, or to learn more about this new reporting requirement, please visit the Ontario Ministry of Transportation website or the CNO website.
