This corrigendum sets out corrections to Assessing Fitness to Drive which came into effect on 1 October 2016 and was published by the National Transport Commission and Austroads on 1 September 2016.

Two errors have been identified in Assessing Fitness to Drive relating to:

  1. repaired abdominal and thoracic aneurysms; and
  2. use of visual aids, specifically telescopic lenses (bioptic lenses) and electronic aids.

This Corrigendum corrects those errors and updates contact details for the Driver Licensing authorities listed in Appendix 9.

A hard-copy version of the guidelines that incorporates these amendments will not be published.

The document published in September 2016 should be read in conjunction with this corrigendum. However, the electronic document available on this website includes these amendments. It can be downloaded from
