Driving, DVLA, Health, and Medical

This section explains the medical conditions you need to be aware of as a driver. Whether you already have a driving licence, or you're learning to drive for the first time, it might be helpful for you to check the list of medical conditions that can affect driving.

If a medical condition will influence your driving then your doctor should make you aware of this and you will need to surrender your licence. Your doctor will tell you when you can drive again. Visit DVLA's website for a more in-depth description of what to do about a particular medical condition.

If a relative dies you may need to inform DVLA of the bereavement so that the individual's licence can be cancelled.
