Can you drive HGV with high blood pressure?

You have to tell DVLA if you have been prescribed a medicine that makes you feel sleepy or drowsy. You must also report if you're taking medication that makes you feel anxious or depressed. If you fail to report these conditions to DVLA, you could be fined up to £100 a day if you drive. Your vehicle could be seized if you get involved in an accident because of these conditions. So, be sure to tell DVLA if you've been diagnosed with a health problem. It doesn't matter what you're taking to treat the condition. It doesn't matter if it's a blood pressure tablet or an epilepsy drug, DVLA needs to know about it. They need to know about any health condition or medication that you take, so they can carry out regular checks and assess your fitness to drive. They also want to know if your condition has changed over time. In case your condition has worsened, DVLA will only allow you to renew your licence if you prove that your condition no longer affects your ability to drive safely. If you don't tell DVLA about any medical condition that affects your driving, you could lose your licence. The law also states that you can lose your licence if you cause an accident due to a medical condition. This can include any kind of physical injury, whether serious or minor.
