In France, the law establishes, according to your state of health, if you are authorized to drive or not. The list of pathologies concerned established since December 2005 was modified by an order in the Official Journal on Sunday. The new list in force since Monday now takes “into account (of) scientific and technological innovations” in terms of fitting out the passenger compartment of vehicles and driving aids in particular. Certain pathologies are now compatible under certain conditions with driving.

Among the major changes, drivers with uncomplicated diabetes whose treatment does not generate a risk of hypoglycaemia will no longer be required to pass a medical check beforehand to drive cars and two-wheelers. People with very severe locomotor disabilities and severe hearing loss will now be able to drive heavy goods vehicles and public transport vehicles, after an examination validated by a certified doctor and a driving license inspector.

The decree also lifts bans on the driving of light vehicles for people with certain very severe locomotor disabilities. It also clarifies the moment from which a person suffering from Alzheimer’s disease and related neuroevolutionary diseases can no longer drive.

While the previous decree set the limit when the person is suffering from “documented dementia”, that of March 28 specifies that there is definitive incompatibility with driving “from the start of stage 3 of the Reisberg scale”. , which measures disease progression. “This is when friends, family and colleagues start noticing certain memory or concentration problems. In practice, for driving, the person no longer pays attention to certain red lights, for example, ”explains Road Safety.
