My doctor says I'm fit to drive after a stroke - do I need to advise the DVLA about it anyway?

I had a small stroke, what should I do? Doctor says I’m fit to drive. Do I have to advise the DVLA? I haven’t so far.

If you have a medical condition that may affect your driving, you need to advise the DVLA. Is there a chance of you having another stroke, and whilst doing so, killing someone else in an accident? if there is, contact the DVLA and seek their advice. If there is not, and your doctor is happy to sign a declaration to that affect, then you do not need to.
