High Risk Offenders

If you have been disqualified for certain particular road traffic offences you will fall into the category of High Risk Offenders (HRO). This requires you to undertake an approved medical examination at your own expense prior to re-applying for your licence towards the end of your ban. There is no obligation on the courts to tell a person convicted that they fall into the HRO category. As such it is important to know whether this requirement will apply to you. We are happy to provide advice to help you clarify whether you fall into this category.

If you fall into the HRO category the DVLA will send you an application form 90 days before the end of your ban. You must then undergo medical assessment. This involves filling in a questionnaire about your medical history and how much you drink, a physical examination, a urine test and blood tests.
