Driving

Many people with Parkinson's who drive are able to continue to do so. It is important to let the DVLA and your motor insurance company know about any major change in your health. This includes telling them you have been given a diagnosis of Parkinson's Disease.

Factors that might affect driving ability include: alertness, reaction times, ability to multi-task, thinking, decision-making and eyesight.

If you are not sure about your driving abilities you can contact the DVLA for further advice.

For more information, please look at the Parkinson’s UK Website (opens in new window) or visit the Government website (opens in new window) where you can download the relevant forms.
