Commercial Vehicle Driver Medicals are for drivers of trucks, public passenger vehicles, and vehicles carrying dangerous goods. Commercial Vehicle Driver Medicals must meet higher medical standards because of the demands of their work.
The National Heavy Vehicle Accreditation Scheme was introduced in 2008 to support improved safety for commercial vehicle drivers in the heavy vehicle industry.
Under the scheme, standards are set for various aspects of heavy vehicle operations including fatigue management given drivers’ extensive hours spent on the road, and the serious consequences likely to result from a crash.
