Britain has some of the safest roads in the world for which driver licensing plays a vital role. Every motorist must meet the required medical standards for fitness to drive, and that’s where the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) come in.   We actively work with Medical Advisory Panels to set the medical standards and shape policy and guidelines for 47 million driving licence holders. 

With several high profile honorary vacancies for both Panel Members and Chairs, we are seeking to appoint skilled GMC registered Consultants who have an outstanding record of achievement, personal credibility and senior level experience within the specialisms outlined below.

About You
As an honorary panel member we would like you to commit to a minimum of four days of work per year (two days for panel meetings and 2 days for meeting preparation), for panel Chairs this commitment will be a minimum of 6 days per year. 

To assist you we offer an induction programme (with one day in Swansea) and reimbursement for expenses. You’ll need to have excellent written and verbal communication skills and if you are applying for the Chair roles, it would be advantageous that you have experience of working as a panel member but not essential.

This unique opportunity will provide you with a set of fascinating challenges which will widen your professional development in the field of setting driving standards and shaping policy, whilst working with some of the foremost experts in their field.
