Certain drivers must undergo a medical examination before receiving their driving licence. If the driver satisfies the medical standards prescribed by the law, he will receive a driving ability certificate. Once in possession of this certificate, the driver should report to the municipality, who will issue the driving licence.

We are authorised to carry out this kind of medical examination.
