Drivers could face a fine for not declaring a major health condition listed by the Driving, Vehicle, and Licencing Agency (DVLA). Drivers are required by the DVLA to declare certain health conditions if they drive a vehicle.
These conditions include poor eyesight, or any condition that could hinder your driving. Drivers who do not declare these health conditions could face their insurance being invalidated and a fine of £1,000.
Included in the list are those who have fits of febrile convulsions. Febrile convulsions are seizures which can happen when someone has a fever.

Symptoms of the fits include a fever, followed by a person making an unusual sound or moaning, or becomes stiffened and is not responsive or alert. The seizures are common in children but could be a sign of an underlying condition in adults.
Fever appears to be the cause of febrile seizures in most cases and viral and bacterial infections are also associated with them. The DVLA has told drivers that they must inform them if they suffer from either condition.
A spokesperson said: "You can be fined up to £1,000 if you do not tell DVLA about a medical condition that affects your driving. If you’re involved in an accident, you may be prosecuted."
