DRIVING AND SLEEP APNOEA
Follow the link on the left for detailed information on whether you need to notify the DVLA, and if so, how and when.
SATA continues to recommend that if you do need to notify the DVLA you should do so in writing rather than by email or by telephone, to reduce the risk of your driving licence being unnecessarily revoked. The reasons for doing so are fully set out in our detailed guidance.
NB. IF A DOCTOR TELLS YOU NOT TO DRIVE THEN YOU MUST NOT DRIVE.
IF YOU DO DRIVE, YOU WILL BE BREAKING THE LAW AND WILL PROBABLY BE UNINSURED.
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 sleep clinic.
This website contains a wealth of information which should answer most of your questions, including those that are DVLA related.
If you need to contact our confidential Helpline, this is now email based on firstname.lastname@example.org
