DVLA Driver’s Medical

This online course will look at the DVLA’s driver’s medical service, what the DVLA does and how its work contributes to keeping the roads safe. It will also cover the standards of vision for driving, what DVLA does when you inform them of a medical condition and an overview of section 88.


This short course has been based on the workshop delivered by Dr Nick Jenkins at the DIA’s 2018 conference. The course will cover the main topics as well as explore other related topics. This is predominately an introductory course so we would encourage you to go away and research the topics more in your own time. There will also be a short quiz at the end of the course to test how much you have taken from the course.  


The aim of the course is to give you an introduction into the DVLA’s drivers medical and how it can impact you as an ADI, as well as encourage you to complete further research into this topic.
