Code 79. 06 on a driving license is associated with the driver receiving a driving suspension or revocation on the grounds of medical reasons. This code indicates that the driver’s medical condition has been assessed by the relevant driver licensing authority and the driver has failed to meet the health requirements to continue driving.
In most cases, the condition has been declared by a medical practitioner as an immediate threat to public safety. Depending on the severity of the medical condition, the license suspension or revocation can last anywhere from a few weeks to a few years and can be indefinite if the medical condition persists.
The driver may only be allowed to have their driving license reinstated after they have successfully provided evidence to demonstrate that the medical condition has improved.

What are the driver’s license codes?

Class B: A Class B license is issued to individuals who are permitted to operate single or combination vehicles with a GCWR of 26,000 lbs or less. This license may also be used to operate vehicles such as large buses, tow trucks, dump trucks, vehicles with oversize loads, etc.
Class C: A Class C license is issued to individuals who are permitted to operate commercial vehicles (including buses) with a GCWR of 26,000 lbs or less, that transport 16 or more passengers or contain hazardous materials or pre-driver or post-driver training.
