Helping Your Patients Retire from Driving

 

Do you have patients who can no longer safely drive? You can help them "retire" from driving.

Have you identified patients who are no longer safe to drive and you would like to help them hang up the keys? DMV has an easy process to help drivers "retire” from driving. Step-by-step instructions on how to help your patients who are no longer safe to drive can be found at the OregonDMV.com website

Under the"Helping Your Patients Retire from Driving” link, you’ll find instructions on how to help your patients turn in their license and obtain an identification card. Your patients may qualify for a no-fee "quit driving" ID card that is good until the expiration of the driver license they surrendered. The ID card can then be renewed for a fee.

The instructions on how to apply for a "quit driving” ID card vary, depending on whether or not your patient is medically able to visit a local DMV office, and their driver license expiration date. If your patient is medically unable to visit a local DMV office due to a medical condition or health problem, they will need a letter from you, as the treating physician, stating that a medical condition or health problem prevents the patient from applying for a "quit driving" ID card in person. Additional information that may be needed is outlined on the website. This process will allow a patient who is medically unable to travel to obtain the quit driving ID card by mail.
