Driving and medical issues
Before you contact DVLA, read about:
- when you must tell DVLA about a medical condition or disability
- how to disagree with DVLA’s decision about your medical condition
- how to reapply for a driving licence following a medical condition
If you tell DVLA about a medical condition you’ll usually get a decision within 6 weeks.
