Are you passionate about road safety and interested in using your medical knowledge and experience to improve our standards for driving? Then we want to hear from you. 

The DVLA is looking for GMC registered and licensed consultants who have an outstanding record of achievement, personal credibility and senior level experience to join our Medical Advisory Panels.

The Panels help maintain and improve road safety by providing the Secretary of State for Transport, the Department for Transport and the DVLA with expert advice about a wide range of medical conditions and their impact on driving. 

About you 

This unique opportunity will provide you with a set of fascinating challenges. These will not only widen your professional development in the field of setting driving standards, but also see you work with other leading experts in both your own and related fields.

We have a number of expert member and panel chair positions across all six of our medical panels which specialise in driving and:

Alcohol, Drugs and Substance Misuse 

Disorders of the Cardiovascular System 

Diabetes Mellitus 

Neurological Disorders 

Psychiatric Disorders 

Visual Disorders

We are looking to recruit into these Panels for an initial term of up to 5 years. If successful, you will start your membership in the next round of Panel meetings in either March or October 2020. 

Closing date: Midnight on Sunday 22 September 2019
