You can receive this certificate for a fee from a doctor at your local health station.

To make an appointment for the health check and certificate, please contact your local health station via Maisa or by phone.

If you are studying towards a profession in logistics, the student health care services of your vocational school or institute will be able to provide you with the driving license certificate.

Please note that public health stations treat patients in order of medical urgency. A driving license certificate is not an urgent issue.

Background information

You may need a medical certificate for a driving licence, a pilot’s licence, certain insurance policies or a new job. A health certificate is issued by a doctor after carrying out a health check. In the certificate, your state of health is examined from the perspective of the purpose for which the certificate is applied for.

Medical certificates are issued by occupational health care services, the health centre or private doctors.

Every person has the right to a certificate detailing their state of health, when this is necessary, for example, for their treatment, livelihood or studying.
