2. Complete a medical assessment at your prefered GP

The TSC requires all applicants to undergo a medical assessment. Your local medical provider will likely provide this service (although pricing may vary.)

You will need to print the following medical assessment and take it to your appointment. You’ll need to upload the assessment to the TSC Document Upload Portal, using credentials provided to you by the TSC after you have submitted your online application.

If applicable, please bring your eyeglasses and medical prescriptions to the appointment.

Failure to bring these, may delay your process and require you to rebook another medical assessment to obtain your driver accreditation.

3. Upload your documents to the TSC Document Upload Portal

You’ll need to upload a photo of your Victorian driver’s licence and your medical assessment to the TSC Document Upload Portal. You can find the link to this portal and your required documents in your emails from the TSC. If relevant, you’ll also need to provide an interstate driving history, certified 100 points of ID and/or further medical information to support your application. Once you log into the portal, the documents you are required to upload will be listed.
