Driver Medicals CAMS

The Con­fed­er­a­tion of Aus­tralian Motor Sport (CAMS) is the licens­ing body for motor vehi­cle rac­ing in Aus­tralia. Most of the CAMS issue motor sport licens­es require a med­ical exam­i­na­tion to con­firm your fit­ness to drive.

CAMS require cer­tain med­ical stan­dards to be met to ensure the safe­ty of the dri­ver, sup­port team and spec­ta­tors. Motor rac­ing is a demand­ing and dan­ger­ous sport and CAMS must ensure every­one involved is capa­ble of dri­ving safely.

Depend­ing on the type of license, some or all of the fol­low­ing are required:

  • Gen­er­al examination
  • Med­ical history
  • Total Cho­les­terol
  • HDL Cho­les­terol
  • Glu­cose
  • Rest­ing ECG
  • Eye­sight test

CAMS require a med­ical exam­i­na­tion on appli­ca­tion for or renew­al of a license. Par­tic­i­pants aged 45 or over are required to renew their med­ical exam­i­na­tion every two years.

If a Speed­way Aus­tralia License is required, CAMS Med­ical exam­i­na­tions must be com­plet­ed every five years, regard­less of age.
