You may need to tell DVLA if you have a driving licence and one of these health conditions. Ask your doctor if you’re not sure your condition will affect your driving.

You must surrender your licence to DVLA if your doctor tells you to stop driving or if you don’t meet the required standards for driving because of your medical condition.

Surrendering your licence voluntarily may mean you can start driving again sooner.
