1. Why have I been referred to the Medical Advisory Board?
If you have been referred to the Medical Advisory Board, it is because the Department has received information indicating that you may have a disorder or disability that precludes you from safely operating a motor vehicle. For additional information visit our Medical Advisory Board webpage.
2. How do you refer a MAB case?
Any individual may anonymously submit, in writing, their concern of a driver who may have a medical condition that could affect their ability to safely operate a motor vehicle. In as much detail as possible, explain who the individual is (Name, Date of Birth, Address, etc.) and why it is unsafe for them to operate a motor vehicle. When submitting the written statement, avoid personalizing information by focusing on the facts. For further information, please visit our Medical Advisory Board webpage.
3. What do I need to do in order to resolve this if I have been referred to the Medical Advisory Board?
You will be provided with a detailed questionnaire that must be completed by a licensed physician and returned to the Texas Department of State Health Services – Medical Advisory Board.

A decision will be forwarded to the Department, who in return, will provide you with official notification.
