Over 100 Health Conditions That Could Cost You £1,000 If Not Reported


As a driver, it is your responsibility to keep the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) up to date with any existing or new medical conditions that you have. Failing to do so could lead to serious repercussions, including a fine of up to £1,000 or even prosecution.


The Importance of Reporting Medical Conditions

The DVLA has listed over 100 health conditions that need to be reported. This list includes conditions ranging from common ones like anxiety and depression to more specific conditions like Acoustic Neuroma and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). The DVLA is also about to update its guidance on eye conditions in the coming weeks.

The Consequences of Not Reporting

If you fail to report any of the listed conditions, you could face a fine of up to £1,000 or even be prosecuted. This is because certain health conditions can affect your ability to drive safely, and it's crucial that the DVLA is aware of any potential risks.

You know you’ve got at least another six hours of walking ahead of you, and this rain isn’t going anywhere. And you can feel the skin of your inner thighs starting to squeak and chafe with every step. Where did you leave that little tub of Vaseline? Take another long, deep breath in through the nose.
