Driver License & ID Card

Driver License Restrictions

Medical Restriction

If there is a medical and or vision condition that may affect driving, a two-part driver license may be required. A two-part driver license includes:

  • The driver license
  • A medical restriction card indicating the driver's requirements that must be carried with the license

If a driver has an existing medical or vision condition, the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) will mail an Exam Station Request for Statement of Physician (form BMV 2310) 45-60 days before the driver's requirement is due. The form must be completed and signed by a doctor and returned to the BMV.

The BMV will mail the driver a new medical card and/or letter of instruction based on information listed on the form. If additional testing is required, the driver must take his or her letter of instruction to a driver exam station for testing. He or she also may be required to visit a deputy registrar license agency for a replacement license to be issued.
