Drivercheck driving doctorDrivers can be fined up to £1,000 if the DVLA is not informed about certain medical conditions, which could affect driving. Those who choose not to could be prosecuted if involved in an accident as a result.

Some conditions can result in immediate revocation – these include eyesight problems or seizures. Other conditions mean your licence could be removed if a doctor deems it necessary but this is rarely the case.

Drivers must give up their licence if a doctor has told them to stop driving for at least three months.

Alcohol problems
AIDS
Alzheimer’s disease
Anxiety
Arthritis
Bipolar disorder
Brain tumours
Cancer
Deja vu
Depression
Diabetes
High blood pressure
