Senior Drivers

Driving is more than getting from one place to another; it represents freedom and independence. Most seniors would like to keep driving for as long as they safely can. For many people, a time may come when they must limit or stop driving either temporarily or permanently.

Report Drivers with Medical/Physical Disabilities

In order to report an unsafe driver to the Department of Safety and Homeland Security’s Driver Improvement Unit, you must submit a written request with the name and birthdate of the driver, along with a brief description of the problem and your name and phone number. We cannot accept anonymous referrals. You may use the “Special/Medical Examination Request Form” listed below.  Submit the referral to us by fax; 615-253-3104 or email to When Driver Improvement receives a signed, written referral or complaint that a driver has a medical/physical disability, the driver will be given the opportunity to have their medical professional complete and submit a medical form (see below) for review.

Drivers with Medical/Physical Disabilities Reporting Documents:

Action taken against these drivers, if any, is based on the completed medical form or other information submitted by their medical professional. In some cases, their driving privileges may be suspended, or restrictions may be added. The driver may also in some cases be required to retake all, or any part, of the driver license examination.
