Everyone 75 and over who holds a Queensland driver licence must carry a current Medical certificate for motor vehicle driver form F3712 at all times when driving and comply with any stated conditions—you can be fined if you don’t.
From 1 July 2017, medical certificates are valid for a maximum of 13 months. This means that if you are 75 or over, and want to keep driving, you must go back to your doctor every 13 months for a new certificate.
In some cases your doctor may want to undertake more regular checks, and your medical certificate may be issued for a shorter period. If your doctor issues a medical certificate for longer than 13 months, you may only use the certificate for 13 months from the issue date.
Medical certificates issued prior to 1 July 2017, will expire on the stated expiry date.
