As a driving licence permit applicant, you do not need to provide a medical certificate, but instead you can assure that you meet the health requirements when applying for your first Group 1 driving licence.
The opportunity to provide your own assurance of your state of health applies to all first Group 1 driving licences, which includes passenger cars, motorcycles, mopeds, light quadricycles and tractors. If you already have some other Group 1 driving licence, you do not need to give further assurance of your state of health when applying for another driving licence from the same group.
The assurance is provided on application form, where the applicant states that they fulfil the required health criteria. The applicant must also assure that their eyesight is sufficient and must notify, if this is the case, that they use glasses or contact lenses.
If you do not wish to or are not able to provide such assurance, you must provide a medical certificate to show that you meet the health requirements for driving.
A person applying for a Group 1 driving licence for the first time (AM/120, AM/121, A1, A2, A, T, B, BE) may provide their own assurance that they meet the health requirements for driving and have sufficiently good eyesight.
For obtaining a driving licence, your combined eyesight score must be at least 0,5. Your eyesight must have been properly examined (e.g. by an optician, doctor or public health nurse).
When applying for your first driving licence, you do not need a separate medical certificate of your driving ability provided that you do not have or have not had any of the following diseases, disabilities or symptoms which can affect one’s driving ability:
