Driving licence - Medical conditions you need to tell the DVLA about to avoid £1,000 fine

MOTORISTS must tell DVLA about different medical conditions on their driving licence to avoid landing a fine.

British motorists are being warned that they could leave themselves open to fines and prosecution for failing to inform the DVLA about medical conditions. Drivers are required to inform the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) of medical conditions which could affect their driving. Motorists could receive a fine of up to £1,000 if a medical condition affects their driving and they fail to tell the agency. The list of medical conditions drivers must let the DVLA know about is around 200, which means it is worth letting checking if you are unsure.

Some conditions are obvious such as a brain injury which could trigger seizures and could have a very obvious effect on your driving.
However, things such as eating disorders or arthritis must also be told to the vehicle agency.
