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.
By phone or email - if you’re a critical worker
Because of coronavirus (COVID-19), DVLA is currently only able to answer your call or email if you’re classed as a critical worker (for example you work in a hospital or in a supermarket, or you’re a lorry driver).
You can email DVLA to tell them about your driving and medical issues.
