Call for evidence – Driver licensing for people with medical conditions Published Date: 06/08/2023

The UK Government has issued a call for evidence, saying "As the volume and complexity of driving licence applications or renewals where the applicant has 1 or more medical condition increases, the government believes that the time is right to review the existing legal framework."

Richard Holden MP, Minister for Roads and Local Transport, said:

"We recognise that there are many people and organisations with a wide range of expertise that might have views or ideas that they wish to share and that is why we are launching this call for evidence. We want to understand any opportunities for change in this area and we need your help with that.

"The aim of this call for evidence is to tap into a wide range of experience, views, and research to help us to identify areas where policy or legislative changes may be able to improve outcomes for drivers and other road users."

The call for evidence period began on 31 July and will run until 22 October.
