Having Parkinson’s doesn’t mean your licence will be affected. However, you do need to let DVLA know you have been diagnosed. They will then send you a self-assessment questionnaire for you to fill out and return. Call them on 0300 790 6802. Obviously, if you do not feel safe driving you must not drive! Some medications can cause drowsiness and if you have any concerns then discuss this with your GP, Parkinson’s Nurse or Consultant. You must also tell your insurance company that you
have been diagnosed. We do not know of anyone who has had their premium increased due to this disclosure.
