Driving and disability
Driving and disability

Having a medical condition or disability does not necessarily mean you cannot or will not be allowed to drive.

Whether you are a new or experienced driver, you must let the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) know about any medical condition or disability that may affect your driving.


Medical conditions, disabilities and driving

You must tell the DVLA if you have, or have ever had, a medical condition or disability that may affect your driving.

If you hold a current driving licence and have a 'notifiable' medical condition or disability, you must tell the DVLA right away.

You should not wait until your licence is due for renewal.

A list of 'notifiable' medical conditions and disabilities can be found here.

It includes epilepsy, strokes and other neurological conditions through to mental health problems, physical disabilities and visual impairments.

You must also tell the DVLA if your medical condition or disability has become worse since your licence was issued or if you develop a new medical condition or disability.


New drivers and the provisional driving licence

Before you can learn to drive a car (or moped or motorcycle) you must apply for a provisional driving licence.

If you have a 'notifiable' medical condition or disability you must declare it on the application form.

DVLA aim to deliver your driving licence to you within three weeks of receiving your application. It might take longer if they have to check on your health or personal details.
