Results of the competency road test are sent to the Medical Affairs, along with a statement indicating whether any infraction of motor vehicle laws occurred during the course of the competency road test.
If a customer with an active license passes the competency road test, then the license remains valid. Failure of a competency road test may affect the customer's license status.
Suspended or Revoked Licenses
If a customer with a suspended or revoked license passes the competency road test, the license will be reinstated. If the customer fails the competency road test and is not cleared for retest, the Medical Affairs will place a medical hold on the license. If the customer fails the competency road test but is cleared for retest the Medical Affairs will resend the competency test paperwork to the customer.
License Restrictions Based on Competency Road Tests
J and P license restrictions are based on competency road tests.
If a customer with an active license fails the road competency test and the recommendation of the road test examiner is no more testing, the Medical Affairs will issue a surrender request for the license. If a customer with an active license fails the competency road test, but the road test examiner requests further testing, the Medical Affairs will place a "J" restriction on the license.
The “J” restriction in this case is defined as “To be accompanied by a licensed driver aged 21 years or more.” The "J" restriction remains until the customer passes the test or fails the test without possibility of retake.
The Medical Affairs may place a "P" restriction on a permit if a hospital or rehab program certifies that the customer is undergoing a Driving Evaluation program OR a driving school confirms the customer is undergoing instruction. The "P" restriction remains until the customer passes the competency road test or fails the test without possibility of retake. If a customer has a "P" restriction, he/she cannot drive without the presence of a Certified Driving Instructor.
