Self-Reporting of Medical Conditions
When applying for a Delaware license and upon renewal of license, the applicant will be required to report or show certification concerning any medical conditions that may interfere with his/her ability to drive. The applicant may be required to submit a favorable certificate/report from his/her physician stating that the driver's medical condition is under sufficient control to permit him/her to safely operate a motor vehicle. Any person licensed to operate a motor vehicle on the basis of this certificate/report may be required to furnish the Division with a new certificate every year no later than the last day of the person's birthday month. Failure to provide a favorable doctor's report will result in the suspension of a person's driver's license. Upon receipt of a favorable physician's certificate/report, a reinstatement fee of $25.00 must be paid to the Division of Motor Vehicles in order to reinstate the license.

The certifying physician must have been treating the person for a minimum of 3 months for loss of consciousness. Any person licensed to operate a motor vehicle on the basis of this certificate/report will be required to furnish the Division with a new certificate every year no later than the last day of the person's birthday month.
