Monocular vision (sight in only one eye) 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.

Car or motorbike licence

You do not need to tell DVLA if you have monocular vision if you’re still able to meet the standards of vision for driving.

If you have a health condition in your functioning eye, check the rules for that condition in health conditions and driving.

Ask your GP, optician or eye specialist if you’re not sure if your monocular vision will affect your driving.

Bus, coach or lorry licence

You must tell DVLA if you have monocular vision.
