DVLA warns of £1,000 fine if you fail to declare over 200 medical conditions

If you don't let them know, you could be prosecuted

The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) has warned motorists across the UK that they could be served £1,000 fines if they don't declare if they are suffering from any one over 200 medical conditions.

The DVLA has also warned that those who don't declare their conditions could be prosecuted if they are involved in an accident, reports the Daily Record.

It is believed that millions of drivers in the UK are currently using the roads without having been candid about their health.

While some are undoubtedly making a conscious decision to not disclose their health issues, it is also believed that many don't know they need to declare it.

Here is a full list of said conditions:
