You can be fined up to £1,000 if you do not tell DVLA about a medical condition that affects your driving.
You must give up your licence if any of the following are true:
- your doctor tells you to stop driving for 3 months or more
- your medical condition affects your ability to drive safely and lasts for 3 months or more
- you do not meet the required standards for driving because of your medical condition
