My wife was diagnosed with MS over 10 years ago.
She has been on medication for the condition for quite a few years, since being on the injections she has not relapsed and shows no symptoms at all.
We did inform the DVLA when she was first diagnosed by sending them a letter. However, that’s the last thing we did and didn’t hear anything back from them.
Last week we were sorting out some clutter and came across my wife’s paper licence and discovered it still has her maiden name displayed. So we decided to collect and fill out a form for a new photo licence to change to her married name.
One of the items on the form asks is you have any medical condition that may affect your driving, one of them is MS.
So I started reading up and discovered if you have MS your licence must be renewed every 3 years after filling out a medical form. If this is the case it seems that the DVLA did not receive the initial letter informing them of the condition as wife still has old paper licence.
My wife’s condition does not affect her driving ability in the slightest. However, we are now worried if we inform them we will be fined up to a £1000.
My question is has anyone that you know of been fined for not informing them immediately when the condition was diagnosed?
