Medical Certificate for Rideshare Driving in Queensland

To obtain a Driver Authorisation (DA) in Queensland, you must obtain a current medical certificate from your doctor to confirm your fitness to drive a rideshare vehicle.

To obtain your medical certificate:

Important notes:

  • A medical certificate must be no more than 6 months old when presented for your driver authorisation  
  • The validity of the medical certificate is up to 5 years. However, it cannot exceed the term of the driver authorisation
  • A conditional or shorter term medical certificate may be issued by your doctor, which may require more regular medical checks to maintain your ability to drive rideshare
  • If you are over 75 years of age, an annual medical certificate must be obtained
