Health Practitioner access to Victoria’s online fitness to drive report is changing

The Department of Transport and Planning is enhancing the security of the online medical report for patient fitness to drive assessments. 

By improving the security of the system the Department of Transport and Planning is working to keep your information and your patients’ information as safe as possible, while ensuring the system stays simple, convenient and easy to use. 

From 6 April 2024 health professionals will need to create a secure log-in by simply visiting the online Medical Report webpage. You will need to have your AHPRA number, date of birth, email address and mobile number for multi-factor authentication (MFA) notifications ready to go. 

Once you have created your secure log-in, you will access the online medical report for all subsequent log-ins using only your email address and a password. 

Its recommend that all health professionals who are currently using the system, or are likely to use this system in future, create your account as soon as possible on or after 6 April 2024 to ensure continued access and a smooth transition to the online medical report with upgraded security. 

You must also ensure that you complete and submit all current draft reports by 5 April 2024, or you will no longer have access to them. After 6 April, for any unsaved reports, you will need to create a new report and start again. 

Draft reports created after 6 April will be available in the system for 30 days for health professionals to complete and submit. (Please note that draft report were previously available for 60 days.) 

Health Professionals who would like access to previously submitted reports for the past 2 years should send your request to the DTP Medical Review Team at medicalreview@roads.vic.gov.au

If you experience any issues creating a secure log-in from 6 April 2024, please contact DTP Medical Review on 03 8391 3226.
