Eye conditions and driving

You can be fined up to £1,000 if you do not tell DVLA about a medical condition that affects your driving. You may be prosecuted if you’re involved in an accident as a result.

You must tell DVLA about your eye condition if it affects both of your eyes. If you only have sight in one eye, you must tell DVLA if you have a condition affecting that eye.

You can report your condition online in most cases.

If your condition affects one eye and you have another condition affecting your other eye, you need to fill in and send form V1 to DVLA. The address is on the form.
