4501:1-1-02 License restrictions; suspension of license.

(A) In accordance with section 4507.20 of the Revised Code, the registrar may require a licensee to submit to a medical examination, or to a driving and maneuverability skills test, or both, if the registrar has good cause to believe that the licensee is incompetent or unqualified to be licensed.

Upon receipt of a medical examiner's report "REQUEST FOR STATEMENT OF PHYSICIAN" "Form 2310" (March 2013) available via the Ohio bureau of motor vehicles' website at http://www.bmv.ohio.gov/bmv_forms.stm, and upon the conclusion of the skills test, if required, the registrar may permit the licensee to retain his or her license, or issue a restricted license, or suspend the license. This form is mailed to the customer by the bureau of motor vehicles.

(B) If the licensee fails the skills test, his or her license is thereby suspended under section 4507.20 of the Revised Code, and he or she will not be eligible to retake the skills test for seven days from the date of the failure.

The registrar may, in cases of hardship, permit a licensee, who lives in an area where public or other transportation is not available, to retake the skills test as early as twenty-four hours.

(C) If a licensee, who is not required to submit to a medical examination, successfully passes the skills test , driving privileges shall be reinstated and restrictions applicable to the licensee may be imposed as the registrar determines to be necessary.

(D) If a licensee, who is required to submit to a medical examination, submits a satisfactory medical examination report and successfully passes the skills test , a license shall be issued with any restrictions the registrar determines are necessary in accordance with this chapter. Such restricted license shall list the routes of travel and any other conditions under which the licensee is permitted to operate a motor vehicle.

(E) All applications for any permits, licenses or reexaminations made under this rule shall be made directly to the bureau of motor vehicles and not to any deputy registrar.
