    Hi,

    My license is currently being renewed, doctor has signed off on me driving and everything is perfect...

    am I still okay to drive while my license hasn’t been returned?

    I know with a 10 year license you are allowed too, just not sure if it is any different for having a 3 year medical restricted one

    Thanks

    Yes, under section 88 of the Road Traffic Act you can do so.
