@Leo1976 , this is the best place to start :-



You must tell DVLA if you have multiple sclerosis - download the correct form to let them know


It's not the definitive answer that you require, but definitive answers need full communication. This form will allow the DVLA to seek details of how your MS affects you from your GP and Consultant.


Then a decision is taken. The links on the webpage will explain the process.


Good luck in getting your life back on track.

Founded in 2004, MS People UK is a community website and discussion forum by and for people with Multiple Sclerosis as well as for friends, families, supporters and those interested in this disabling condition.

If you’re newly diagnosed or want to ask about possible first symptoms, or if you’ve had Relapse Remit, Secondary or Primary Progressive MS for some time, a welcoming group of fellow MS sufferers is here to chat with you about MS symptoms, diagnosis and treatments.

The atmosphere is friendly whilst being compassionate, supportive and caring. Members also post about a variety of subjects not related to MS, as well as share jokes, talk about their hobbies, have fun, and more.
