Driving with pulmonary hypertension

You are required by law to notify the DVLA that you have pulmonary hypertension.

Since 2018, people with pulmonary hypertension have been required to notify the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Association (DVLA) of their health condition.

At the PHA UK we have worked hard in collaboration with the DVLA to ensure the process is simple and fair – doing the right thing by people with PH whilst also ensuring safety for all road users.

The aim of this web page is to guide you through the process of notifying the DVLA of your PH, answer some of the common questions we hear, and help you understand what to expect along the way.
