ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT SLEEP APNOEA – PROBABLY
Although we support patients in many ways, we do not provide medical advice. If you suspect you may be suffering from sleep apnoea please contact your GP who will be able to refer you to a specialised sleep clinic.
The Driving and Sleep Apnoea Section has been completely revised AGAIN, with clear and simple guidance to the new DVLA wording, a self-help section of you have problems with the DVLA, whatever the cause and a new dedicated DVLA Enquiry line, should you not find solutions in this section.
Forms SL1 & SL1V have been revised and we have updated the advice to cover the changes.
For medical professionals, the new position statement on Driving and Obstructive Sleep Apnoea from the British Thoracic Society brings superb clarity and ends over two years of confusion since the rules were changes by the DVLA.
DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES PHONE THE DVLA OR USE THEIR ON-LINE MEDICAL REPORTING SYSTEM. IF YOU MAKE A MISTAKE YOU COULD HAVE YOUR LICENCE REVOKED. ONLY COMMUNICATE BY LETTER AND KEEP A COPY OF EVERYTHING.
