For general assistance from the DVLA regarding policy changes, forms and more, call the customer service team on 0844 248 2089. This line is the automated service for the DVLA, and you will be able to find someone who can help you further.

Medical Advice Helpline

If you have a medical condition or disability that may affect your ability to drive, you should call the DVLA Medical group to inform them on 0844 248 2125. This is for a number of reasons, including the risk of yourself and other drivers, and whether your medication/illness can affect the way you drive in a safe and normal manner.

Medical Exam Booking Helpline

After you inform the DVLA of your medical illness, you may need to book in for a medical exam, which is needed to test that you are safe to drive. The DVLA works closely with doctors in order to get an idea of your ability to drive, which is why you can forward your doctor’s notes from your GP, should the DVLA request you to do so. You can book a medical examination over the phone with the DVLA by calling 0844 248 2127. From here, someone will be able to take your name, date of birth, any information they may need and will be able to book you in for a medical examination. Examinations can be made at your GP, and any information they have will be given to the DVLA. You will then need to fill in the relevant form and send it via post to the DVLA in order for them to make an assessment on your health and decide if you are fit to drive.
