Why am I on Medical Review?
The Medical Review Services (MRS) team places Virginia drivers on medical review based on medical conditions, medications, and/or events that could impair their ability to safely operate a motor vehicle, even temporarily. Most outcomes require drivers to comply with certain requirements or periodically submit updated medical information to the MRS Team. Please see the possible outcomes below for more information.
