You can renew your short-term medical driving licence if:

  • you have one because of a medical condition
  • it lasts for 1, 2, 3 or 5 years
  • it’s about to expire, or already has

At the moment, you can only renew online if you have diabetes, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, a visual impairment, a sleep condition, or a heart condition.

This service is also available in Welsh (Cymraeg).

You can’t use this service to:

Use a different service to reapply for a driving licence if yours was taken away or you surrendered it because of a medical condition.

You can also renew your short-term medical driving licence by post. DVLA will send you a renewal reminder 90 days before your licence expires.

If you don’t receive a reminder, you should order form D1 and download and fill in the medical forms for your condition. Send them all to DVLA - the address is on the forms.
