Pulmonary Hypertension and the DVLA
The guidance of the DVLA on driving with pulmonary hypertension (PH) has now changed. It is now compulsory to inform the DVLA if you have a diagnosis of PH. This is straightforward to do – you need to phone 0300 790 6806 and tell the DVLA staff that you have pulmonary hypertension under the care of a specialist centre.
Be reassured that it is highly unlikely that you will have your licence taken away by calling the DVLA. You should be allowed to continue to drive whilst the DVLA makes their assessment.
