"6. Applicants for a driving license must undergo an appropriate examination to ensure that they have the visual acuity required to drive a vehicle. On examination, it pays particular attention to the following: visual acuity, field of vision, visual ability in low light, glare and contrast sensitivity, diplopia and other eye diseases that endanger safe driving.
If vehicle drivers in Group 1, the driver of the vehicle was subjected to a medical examination conducted by a competent medical authority to demonstrate that visual function is not affected in other ways (including sensitivity to bright light and contrast and to in low light conditions).
1) Group 1:
a) Applicants for a driving license or renewal of such license must have a binocular visual acuity, with corrective lenses including at least 0.5 when using both eyes.

a) persons who consider themselves capable of driving the vehicle must have a visual acuity, with corrective lenses if necessary, of at least 0.8 and at best eye 0,1 to weaker eye. If corrective lenses are used to obtain values ​​of 0.8 and 0.1, that acuity (0,8 and 0,1) must be achieved either by using glasses exceeding plus eight diopters or using lenses contact. The correction must be well tolerated.
Horizontal visual field should be at least 160 degrees in both eyes, the extension should be at least 70 degrees left and right and 30 degrees up and down. Should not be weaknesses within a range of 30 degrees to the centerline.

10. For the purposes of this point, severe hypoglycaemia means that the assistance of another person is needed and chronic hypoglycaemia means second episode of acute hypoglycemia within 12 months.
1) Group 1:
a) Candidates or vehicle drivers suffering from diabetes are admitted to driving when they are medicated, and glycosylated hemoglobin is under control. The applicant must obtain a permit which authorized medical examination indicated the frequency interval between examinations should not exceed five years.
B) are not allowed for applicants or drivers driving the vehicle with repeated episodes of severe hypoglycaemia and / or who are not fully aware of its implications. A vehicle driver with diabetes should demonstrate that they understand the risks of hypoglycemia and is able to keep under control these episodes. As awareness of the risks of hypoglycaemia argument serves presence monitoring data by that blood sugar levels and knowledge of the danger signs of hypoglycaemia and prevention of these conditions.
2) Group 2:
a) Drivers of vehicles who suffer from diabetes are admitted to driving categories of Group 2, and if they follow a medical treatment risk of inducing hypoglycaemia (ie insulin, and some tablets) the following criteria apply:
in the last 12 months there has been no severe hypoglycaemia;
Driver of the vehicle is fully aware of the implications of hypoglycemia;
Driver of the vehicle shows that can manage these episodes by regular monitoring of blood glucose levels at least twice a day and when he intends to lead;

I) after curative surgery to see the letter e).
2) Group 2:
a) The applicant shall not follow antiepileptic medication during the crisis should not exist.

After a flare should make an EEG and an appropriate neurological exam.
B) Seizures caused: the applicant who has had a seizure caused by a recognizable factor that is unlikely to occur while driving can be declared fit to drive, according to neurological opinion. After a flare should make an EEG and an appropriate neurological exam. A person with a structural lesion intracerebral and presenting an increased risk of seizures should not drive vehicles of group 2 until the epilepsy risk drops to 2% per year. Specialty exam must be performed, as appropriate, in accordance with other relevant sections.

C) first crisis (unprovoked) or single unprovoked crisis: the applicant who has had a first unprovoked epileptic seizure can be declared able to drive after a period of five years who have not had seizures and not taking medication if a neurological exam was performed properly. Specialized authorities may grant the vehicle with good prognosis, based on data from medical records, lead earlier than this.
D) Loss of consciousness: Loss of consciousness should be assessed according to the risk of recurrence while driving. The risk of recurrence should be 2% per year.
E) Epilepsy: it must be a period of ten years without seizures and without administration of antiepileptic drug treatment. Specialized authorities may grant the vehicle with good prognosis, based on data from medical records, lead earlier than this. This applies in the case of "juvenile epilepsy".
F) Certain conditions (eg, birth arterovenoase or intracerebral haemorrhage) entail an increased risk of seizures, even in cases where there was no previous crisis. In such a situation must carry out an examination by a competent medical authority; the risk of a crisis must not exceed 2% per year for determining fitness for driving.
121. Sleep apnea obstructive.
1) For the purposes of this paragraph, moderate apnea obstructive sleep corresponds to a number of episodes of apnea and hypopnea per hour (apnea-hypopnea index) between 15 and 29 and severe sleep apnea obstructive apnea-hypopnea index corresponds to a minimum of 30, both associated with excessive daytime sleepiness.
