If you are worried about sleep apnoea, having difficulty in coming to grips with CPAP treatment, or just need a bit of practical advice, email our Help Line. This service is available to members and non-members.


N.B. Please note we do not provide medical advice. If you suspect that you may be suffering from sleep apnoea please consult your GP who will be able to refer you to a sleep clinic.

DVLA Help Line — Closed  – Please use the extensive information available on our website,

Please use the self help information on our website first, to try and find a solution that you can sort out for yourself.

If your issue is with the DVLA, please contact your MP as they are best placed to sort out your problem very quickly – that is part of their job.

If your issue is with the Sleep Clinic then contact the PALS department of the hospital in which the Sleep Clinic is based-their job is to investigate and get results.

Updated guidance is available on this website for those of you who are suspected of having, or who have been diagnosed with sleep apnoea and need help in deciding whether or not you need to notify the DVLA, and if so, how to do so. There is also updated guidance for those whose licence has already been withdrawn. We will still offer advice if it is not covered by information on our website, so we ask you to email us.
