Drivers face £1,000 fines or even losing their driving licence if they do not declare one of 182 medical conditions, the DVLA has warned.

According to the government website, there is a long list of conditions drivers must tell the DVLA when applying for their licence.

Failure to do so could land them in hot water.

It comes as the government agency has urged drivers of any age to inform them of any conditions that may affect their driving or be subject to a £1000 penalty.

Recently, lawyers and leading driving experts have called for a bi-annual check to assess motorists' abilities to help clamp down on potential accidents. 

The DVLA has reminded drivers should have good eyesight is needed to detect road hazards and prevent accidents.

It has also recommended to motorists that they should attend regular eye checks and assess themselves from home.

A full A to Z of medical conditions that require reporting to the government agency is on the DVLA website.
