Requesting Removal from Medical Review Program

Drivers who would like to be considered for removal from the Medical Review Program should mail a completed Removal Request form or a written request that includes their name, date of birth and North Carolina driver license number to:

Medical Review Program
3112 Mail Service Center
Raleigh, NC 27697-3112

The Medical Review Unit will notify a driver once it receives the request and has made a decision.

Submitting a removal request does not guarantee that a driver will be removed from the Medical Review Program. Removal is based on the driver's current health status, their health care provider's recommendation and medical fitness to drive health standards.

To consider removal, the Medical Review Unit may request additional health information, and a driver might need to submit additional information for a final decision.

Submitting a removal request does not delay or reverse any license restrictions. A driver who received a letter that restrictions must be placed on their license should visit a local driver license agency to have the restriction(s) placed.

Note: North Carolina commercial driver license holders in the Intrastate Waiver Program who would like to be removed from the waiver program, may visit a local driver license agency to surrender (or downgrade) the commercial driver license to a Class C license. A driver may voluntarily surrender their commercial driver license (at no additional cost) at any time prior to the expiration of their NCDOT medical certificate and waiver.

If a driver's request for removal is denied, the driver may submit a future request if their condition changes or improves.
