DVLA – Driving Licences

GPs are not qualified, trained or indemnified to advise patients whether they are fit to drive. In normal circumstances a practice may provide a factual report for the DVLA so that their expert medical advisers will decide upon fitness. If a GP were to provide an opinion that their patient was ‘fit to drive’, and then an accident were to occur, the GP may be liable. This would not be covered by the NHS Clinical Negligence Scheme for General Practice, as this is not NHS work.

Conversely, were a GP to say that a patient was not fit, that may adversely affect the long-term doctor-patient relationship. For these reasons, if there is any doubt about a patient’s fitness to drive, the GP should decline to provide this assurance. We recommend writing to the DVLA explaining that as a GP, your place is not to provide an opinion as to an individual’s fitness to drive per se, but that you will readily comply with providing factual updated information about your patient’s health, with their express consent.
