If you’ve developed a medical condition, you’ll need to declare it to the DVLA and your insurance provider. This could mean a rise in your insurance premiums, or even the need to find a specialist insurance provider.
The DVLA website has a list of medical conditions and disabilities that must be declared. Failure to disclose a medical condition that could affect your driving may result in a fine of up to £1,000, or even prosecution if you’re involved in an accident as a result.
You may need to take a course to assess your driving ability. This can be done at a local Mobility Centre, or by taking an RoSPA Experienced Driver Assessment course.
Even if you don’t have a medical condition, it can still be a good idea to get assessed for peace of mind that your driving skills are still up to scratch.
