Transport and Main Roads Statement on fitness to drive in Queensland
27 Nov 2023
The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) wants to reassure all Queenslanders there is no specific legislation that states that autistic people cannot drive.
In a joint statement released on 27 November 2023, TMR said that while it is a legal requirement that all drivers in Queensland be medically fit to drive, there have been no recent changes impacting on the driving eligibility of autistic Queenslanders.
Autism Queensland CEO Pam Macrossan welcomed the clarification.
