Medical

Some medical conditions can affect a person's ability to drive safely.  Saskatchewan Government Insurance (SGI) has a Medical Review Unit (MRU) that assesses and monitors drivers who have medical conditions that may affect their ability to safely operate a vehicle. The MRU may determine that a medical condition is affecting an individual's driving ability and apply restrictions or suspend driving privileges. Additional information about the MRU can be found on SGI's website.

You have the right to file an appeal with the Highway Traffic Board (HTB) over a sanction that the MRU has placed on your driver's licence and your driver ability assessment. Sanctions on your licence can include restrictions and/or suspensions, or other conditions.

How to File an Appeal:

  • Send your supporting documents and a letter to the HTB listing the reasons why you are requesting an appeal. 
  • Once the HTB receives your letter and supporting documents, you will be contacted to arrange a date and time for the appeal hearing.

Information the HTB Will Consider at the Hearing:

  • The MRU's rationale for their decision
  • Letters from SGI
  • Medical reports from physicians
  • Physical examinations
  • Driver's licence medical reports
  • Driver evaluations and assessment reports

What to Expect at the Hearing: 

  • Medical appeals are conducted in person, scheduled during the day, and take place in Regina or Saskatoon.
  • The hearing will take about 30 minutes.
  • Board members will ask you questions regarding the action taken by SGI against your driver's licence; measure the risk to public safety versus the impact on your suspension; and make a decision that is in the public's best interest.
  • Following your hearing, the HTB can maintain, alter, or reverse SGI's penalty.
  • You will be notified by mail within a week of your hearing about the HTB's decision.
  • The decision is binding and cannot be appealed.
