Statement from DVLA,
“In our attempt to clarify the advice for drivers with autism spectrum disorders we’ve clearly muddied the waters and we’re very sorry for that.
We have amended the advice on http://GOV.UK for both drivers and medical professionals which make it clear that a driver who has an autism spectrum disorder only need tell us if their condition could affect their driving.”
This shows the power that social media has. When the DVLA first posted their advice, it was very concerning and appeared to say Autism was a disclosable condition.
You can read more about it over on the NAS website who were one of the organisations who challenged the DVLA along with the masses on social media
