Victoria has embarked on a transformation of Victoria’s roads to sustain growth in our population and economy to meet the aspirations of Victorians for an integrated transport system. Roads touch everyone’s lives, every day. With our population forecast to reach 10 million by 2051, the work of VicRoads will help meet the demands of this growth and successfully connect communities. This is critical in creating an inclusive, prosperous and environmentally responsible State. Freight movements will also triple, putting more pressure on our transport networks.
About the Business Area
At VicRoads, we need to make sure all licenced drivers are medically fit to drive and have the necessary skills to drive safely.

The role actively provides support/guidance to medical professionals and customers on their cases, and contributes towards the education of staff, key stakeholders and the wider community on the Medical Review process. The Medical Review team includes case file processing and leadership staff. The team also has access to external medical advisors.
