I dont know about the UK but in the US it is none of their damn business. That is irrelevant. I would not even mention your illness or meds or any of that.

One psychiatrist said if i don't declare it and have an accident the insurance may refuse to pay, i've declared it on the form for a license they sent me a more detailed form to fill out, then gave me a license, as i've never passed a driving test it was provisional, heard after the next parliament they're likely to tighten up on those driving on prescription meds, the insurance costs extra, whether i'm safe driving a motorbike, even with l plates on meds, it's not something i can answer, i know it effects reaction time

My son reported it and had no troble gettin his lisence. If you don't report it, have an accident, and they then find out it has not been reported I imagine it might cause a lot of trouble.

I guess its a question you need to ask your doctor if your not sure if you should report it to the DVLA or not.


As for insurance in the paperwork I got from a benefits application I made last year it classed me as now being disabled, so when it was due for renewal I did a searching for both unemployed and disabled just to see if there was any difference, on the whole disabled came out a couple of quid cheaper than being classed as unemployed, which I was a bit surprised about.
