Mental required for driving license

In obtaining a driving license in addition to the medical fitness certificate, applicants will also soon be required to submit a mental health certificate, said the Chairman of the National Council for Road Safety (NCRS), Dr. Sisira Kodagoda.

He said this measure was being taken due to the rising number of road accidents.

Measures have been taken to submit a Cabinet proposal by the Transport and Civil Aviation Minister Nimal Siripala de Silva.
 
It is also reported that the clause pertaining to the requirement of a mental health certificate was also included in the Motor Traffic (Amendment) bill that was presented to parliament recently by the Transport and Civil Aviation Minister Nimal Siripala de Silva.
