A. The department shall provide on each driver license and on each nonoperating identification license a space where a licensee may indicate that the licensee suffers from some type of adverse medical condition using a medical code prescribed by the department if the licensee presents a signed statement from a physician who is licensed pursuant to title 32, chapter 13 or 17 or a registered nurse practitioner who is licensed pursuant to title 32, chapter 15 stating that the person suffers from the condition.
