Section 88 of the Road Traffic Act

Posted by: Monifa - Posted on:

Some Drivers are now being told by the DVLA to ask their GP if they are fit to drive so that they can continue to drive under Section 88 of the Road Traffic Act.

GPs are not usually qualified, and may not be indemnified, to advise our patients whether or not they are fit to drive. If a GP chooses to produce a bespoke report prepared for a patient to be sent to the DVLA on your behalf, a reasonable fee will be charged as this is not NHS work.
