answer text <p>In cases where a medical condition is identified, the DVLA will carry out an investigation. The length of time taken to carry out an investigation depends on the medical condition involved and whether information is needed from medical professionals. The target is to complete 90 per cent of all medical investigations within 90 working days.</p><p> </p><p>The table below shows the figures for the number and proportion of Group 2 medical cases that met the target in the last five years.</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>2015-16</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2016-17</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2017-18</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2018-19</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2019-20</strong> <strong>(to 3 Sept)</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Number within target</p></td><td><p>73,402</p></td><td><p>75,114</p></td><td><p>72,422</p></td><td><p>91,761</p></td><td><p>33,340</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Proportion within target</p></td><td><p>81.90%</p></td><td><p>88.00%</p></td><td><p>87.9%</p></td><td><p>90.94%</p></td><td><p>90.35%</p></td></tr></tbody></table>

answer text <p>All drivers are required by law to notify the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) at any time about the onset or worsening of a medical condition affecting safe driving. When a driver first applies for a Group 2 (lorry or bus) licence they must submit a medical report regarding their fitness to drive which must be completed by a doctor.</p><p> </p><p>Group 2 licences are valid for five years. At each renewal, drivers under the age of 45 must make a declaration about whether or not they suffer from a medical condition that may affect their fitness to drive. Drivers renewing their driving entitlement at the age of 45 and over must include a medical report completed by a doctor. At the age of 65, renewals are required annually and must be supported by a doctor.</p><p> </p><p>The DVLA will investigate a person’s fitness to drive if an application, report or a third party notification indicates that they may have a medical condition that affects safe driving.</p> more like this
