Call for Health Checks Before Issuing Driving LicenseCall for Health Checks Before Issuing Driving License

Deputy Health Minister Reza Malekzadeh has called for laws on the issuance of a driving license to be revised to include medical tests for kidney and liver conditions.  “Currently, only eyesight is tested while many other debilitating health conditions such as chronic kidney and liver diseases are ignored,” he told IRNA.  Those suffering from kidney and liver ailments also are afflicted with sleeping disorders and become sleepy during the day, he added.  A group of health conditions that raise the risks of accidents must be identified and included in the rules related to qualifying for a driver’s license, especially for heavy vehicles, the senior official was quoted as saying.
