A medical certificate to replace a driver's license is required for anyone who has expired this document. It is established whether a person has, at the time of examination, contraindications to the driving of cars and other moving equipment.
About where to get a driver's medical certificate
At present, it's easiest to get a similar document in private medical centers that have the appropriate permission to issue this type of certificate. It should be noted that the simplicity and high speed of passing such a commission will cost the patient quite expensive. The fact is that a medical certificate to replace a driver's license requires a visit to a number of specialists and the surrender of several tests. The cost of medical examination and laboratory, as well as instrumental research in private centers is much higher than in public ones. At the same time, analyzes in paid clinics will be checked much faster, and there are no queues to specialists there.
The medical examination for the rights pass
Different centers are the result of one
Many believe that if they were not admitted to driving in one medical institution, then in another they can pass it with a positive verdict. This opinion is erroneous. The fact is that a medical certificate to replace a driver's license will allow a person to drive a car only when he has no contraindications. At the same time, they are all defined by the same document. So there is absolutely no difference in exactly where the person passes the commission, for the final result is not.
For how long is the help provided?
This document remains valid only for a certain period of time. The number of years covered by the driver's medical certificate depends on the presence or absence of various diseases. In the event that a person does not have any serious ailments, the extension period may be 2 years. If, however, the health of the person examined causes the doctor to have any questions, then the time interval between medical commissions can be reduced up to 1 year. After the expiry of this document, the driver's medical certificate must be replaced in a timely manner. Otherwise, the traffic police may have serious claims to the driver.
How long does the commission last?
It depends on the center that the person chose. If it is a question of private clinics, a medical certificate to replace the driver's license can be obtained almost per day. In the event that a person gave preference to a state institution, the process can take up to a week.
It is worth noting that most of the various commissions, including driver's ones, take place in the first half of the year. As a result, September-November are an excellent period for obtaining a driver's medical certificate.
What tests and research do I have to do?
In order to obtain a driver's medical certificate is possible, you will have to undergo several tests and studies. Among the main:
- general blood test;
- general urinalysis;
- blood test for glucose;
Depending on whether the patient has certain diseases, specialists can refer him to an additional examination. In addition, pre-examinations in stationary conditions may be necessary.
What kind of specialists will you visit?
The help of the driver's medical commission will be signed only if the person passes all the necessary specialists. Among them:
- gynecologist( for women of the fair half of humanity);
At the reception of the surgeon
A new driver's medical certificate without a visit to this specialist will not be issued. This is due to the fact that surgical pathology often becomes the reason for denying a person the right to drive an automobile product. Most often, it is about those cases when the examinee has had any injuries in the past. Also, the cause of the ban can be congenital defects in the development of the musculoskeletal system.
The medical commission on the rights necessarily assumes visits by the candidate to the drivers of this specialist. It deals with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases affecting the central or peripheral nervous system. One of the most common ailments in which a medical certificate to replace a driver's license will impose a ban on the management of road transport, is epilepsy.
Most often, this is the same doctor. As for the psychiatrist, he will certainly ask the passing commission a few questions. In addition, the specialist will check whether a person is on record for one or another mental illness, whether he had any suicidal attempts in the past.
If we talk about taking a narcologist, then for a person who has never really abused alcoholic beverages and did not take any drugs, he will proceed very quickly. If earlier the patient had to visit this specialist not only for medical examination, he may have serious problems with obtaining a permit for driving an automobile product.
This specialist is engaged in the detection and treatment of diseases of the ears, throat, and nose. In the event that they reach significant levels, a person may not sign a certificate of successful passage of the driver's commission. In this case, the conclusion of an otorhinolaryngologist is extremely rarely the cause of the ban on the management of motor vehicles.
Without an ophthalmologist anywhere
One of the key specialists that need to go through the medical commission is an ophthalmologist. The main moment at the reception he will have a vision test. The fact is that a visually impaired person can cause huge problems for the entire traffic. It is absolutely not necessary that a patient with poor eyesight will be forbidden to drive a car. An ophthalmologist will help him in solving his problems. The doctor will prescribe the patient a rational course of treatment or prescribe the wearing of glasses or contact lenses with certain corrective characteristics.
What will the therapist say?
The help of the driver's medical commission will not be signed without passing the therapist. The fact is that this particular specialist most often makes diagnoses that prohibit a person from driving a car. Usually the cause of such limitations is arterial hypertension of the 2 nd or 3 rd degree. At the same time, if in the second case a person is involved in road traffic as a driver, they will definitely prohibit him, then in the first case the approach will be individual. The fact is that the second degree of hypertension becomes a prohibition for driving motor vehicles only when a person has been diagnosed with at least six hypertensive crises in the previous year.
In addition to hypertension, the causes of inhibitions on driving are other diseases of the cardiovascular system. Especially if there is a serious circulatory failure. In the post-stroke and post-infarction periods within 1 year, the certificate of the driver's medical commission is not issued, even if the person is already feeling normal. The patient will not be able to obtain a permit to manage road transport even during the active course of the oncological process.
Any acute illness is the reason for postponing the commission. Trying simply not to complain to the therapist about any symptoms of a different kind of cold is also not worth it. The fact is that in acute respiratory diseases in the vast majority of cases, the rate of erythrocyte sedimentation is at least increased. As a result, the doctor still does not sign the certificate, and can still send for additional research, which also will have to pay.
How much is it?
The cost of passing a medical driver's license largely depends on which health care institution the person approached. In state polyclinics, its cost usually ranges from 800 to 1200 rubles. As for private medical centers, this service will cost between 1500 and 2000 rubles.
