Unfortunately, the DVLA can also tell you to stop driving, if you’re not fit to drive.
If you have a condition which you need to declare to the DVLA, you also need to declare this to your insurer.
You may find that your premiums go up or that you need to seek a specialist provider.
The DVLA can refer you (and pay for the assessment) if they’ve asked you to take it, but there may be a long wait.Talk to your GP before reapplying for your licence so you can prove your condition has improved.If you or your passenger has severe mobility problems, the Blue Badge scheme lets you park nearer your destination than you might otherwise be able to.Sometimes the DVLA will issue you with a driving licence for 1, 2 or 3 years and then review things again in the future.
The DVLA can also give you a licence that shows you need to fit special controls to your vehicle to help you to drive with your disability.
If you’re over 70 and want to keep on driving, you’ll have to renew your driving licence.
