What you need for Report a medically impaired driver

 To report a medically impaired driver, you need to be a:

  • family member
  • health care provider
  • law enforcement officer
  • interested third party, including, but not limited to, a member of the driver’s community (such as neighbors), a private driving school, a social worker, etc.

If you are a medically impaired driver, you can voluntarily surrender your license and receive a Mass ID free of charge.

A law enforcement official or healthcare provider may send a report in good faith with underlying information based on their own personal evidence or observations to the RMV. This will immediately result in a licensing action from the RMV.

Concerned citizens who report will cause the Medical Affairs to seek further information from a healthcare provider and the person who is reported on.
