What is a Board Review?
Board Reviews are an appeals process that a driver can request when their license has been cancelled or denied for medical reasons. These reviews are done by the Medical Review Board which is a panel of 3 health care professionals who serve in an advisory role to the DMV. The Medical Review Board meets monthly, rotating between Madison, Milwaukee and Marshfield.
Who is eligible for a Board Review?
- Any driver whose license has been cancelled or denied for medical reasons, unless they don’t meet the minimum visions standard or have not met the 3-month seizure-free period after a loss of consciousness.
- School or passenger bus drivers who have insulin-dependent diabetes or who do not meet federal vision standards are
required to get board approval.
Note: board approval is required even if the driver holds a federal medical waiver,
state medical waiver, has an industry exception or is grandfathered.
What is the process for getting a Board Review?
When your license is cancelled or denied, a cancellation (or denial letter) is sent to you along with information on how to request a board review.
If you want to get a Board Review, follow the instructions provided with your cancellation or denial notice.
If your medical condition has changed, you always have the option of providing a new/updated Medical Examination Report
MV3644 or Certificate of Vision Examination by Competent Authority MV3030V. An improvement may help you meet medical standards and re-establish your ability to drive safely.
