Health professionals can refer anyone with a medical condition

NHS health professionals can refer anyone with a medical condition which could affect fitness to drive. RDAC provide a wide range of services; vehicle adaptions in order to learn to drive or to enable a return to driving, advice on vehicle access or stowing mobility equipment or, any other vehicle related query. Medical conditions could include; neurological conditions, musculoskeletal conditions, vision problems, psychiatric conditions, learning difficulties, degenerative diseases, frail, elderly or anyone with confidence issues after a break from driving. It is important that clients inform DVLA when they have a ‘notifiable’ medical condition (see DVLA rules for further advice). If the client is not currently driving then they may not need to notify DVLA until they are ready to return to driving. If in doubt please contact either DVLA directly or RDAC for advice (DVLA Tel: 0300 790 6806 or RDAC Tel: 0121 359 4222)
