Confidentiality: fitness to drive and reporting concerns to the DVLA or DVA


Doctors will often face situations where they have to think about whether a patient's illness might affect that patient's fitness to drive. And in certain circumstances, you may have to make a decision on whether to disclose information about that patient to the DVLA/DVA, or even to the police.

These situations can be sensitive and occasionally difficult to deal with, so knowing how to proceed and where to find the right information is vital.

This online module will help you learn where to find information on the medical standards for fitness to drive, when and how to report concerns to the DVLA/DVA, and what action to take if a patient continues to drive against medical advice.

You'll also have the opportunity to work through some hypothetical cases and review your knowledge with a short end of module quiz.
