Medical Conditions Reportable to DVLA

Are you aware of the medical conditions that are reportable to DVSA?


You need to tell DVLA about some medical conditions as they can affect your driving and the list is long, but comprehensive.

You can be fined up to £1,000 if you do not tell DVLS about a medical condition that affects your driving. You may be prosecuted if you’re involved in an accident as a result.

We know about the reservations that professional drivers have when it comes to reporting any medical condition to the DVLA, as there is always the fear of the licence being suspended or revoked.

However, we have been looking into this due to delivering trainings, and the main thing that needs to be highlighted, is that if the worst happened it would result in a fatality or you or other people.  It is just not worth it.

You have to give your licence up if your doctor has told you not to drive for 3 months or more, or if you do not meet the required standard for driving.

There are comprehensive guides online and the links are below to assist you:
