*** Important - The Law has changed. ***
When I saw my Sleep Apnoea (SA) Consultant recently one of the things that she specifically said about (and handed out a leaflet) is that since I saw her in August last year was that the law had changed with regard to notification of SA. She also included a whole paragraph in the letter to my GP.
Now if you have ANY form of SA (even very mild and even if you have not had any treatment) you must notify the DVLA and your insurance company. I found it as Form SL1 online at gov.uk/government/publicati... Apparently the DVLA will always write to the SA consultant for confirmation of SA and I have just received my letter back confirming that they have written to her. According to the DVLA leaflet she have me up to to 1/5 (one fifth) of accidents on motorways and other monotonous roads may be caused by drivers falling asleep at the wheel.
My interpretation from what she said, from the DVLA website and others is that if you have ever had it you need to notify DVLA.
She said that the SA Association and Consultants have put in objections and hope to get this reversed at some stage so that mild and very mild SA does not need to be notified but for now everyone is stuck with it!!!
