When applying for a driving licence you are required to disclose any medical conditions you have.
This is because certain medical conditions could require drivers to have something in the car with them when on the road, such as glasses for those who are visually impaired.There are, however, a number of conditions that on the surface may not seem like they would have an affect on your driving and therefore may not seem worth disclosing.
If you don’t tell the DVLA about a medical condition that affects your dragon, you could be fined £1,000 and may even be prosecuted if you’re involved in an accident as a result of it.
Health conditions have the potential to impair driving in a range of different ways and motoring experts at LeaseCar.uk have found some of the most surprising conditions you are legally required to disclose.
A spokesperson for LeaseCar.uk said: “If you suffer a broken limb or severe head injury that affects your memory or ability to perform everyday tasks, you’re probably not going to be able to operate a vehicle safely either.“In these cases, it seems obvious that you’d have to let the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency know about it.
“There are some conditions however, that seem too unrelated to even consider spending the time to fill out a form to tell the DVLA about.
“These are the kind of conditions we’ve listed below, to try and inform drivers and hopefully help many stay safe and avoid any fines – or even prosecution!”
