    DVLA Medical Terrible Service Very Slow

    DVLA Medical Terrible Service Very Slow 13th Jan 14 at 6:47 PM
    Sorry but I also posted this in the Motoring section. I didn't realise this area existed and this may be more relevant here:

    I was a driver until some health problems and then when I notified the DVLA my licence was revoked. I decided to reapply for my licence. It seems to be taking an exceptionally long time given that the revoking was a very quick process in which I was ordered by the DVLA to act immediately under the threats of a 1,000 fine!

    The DVLA have had medical notes back from my medical people but sent a letter saying it will now take up to 12 weeks which seems a long time.

    I am interested to know if anyone else is in this situation or if I am some kind of "special case" that is taking a long time. It seems a very lengthy process for what really seems to be quite a simple box ticking and form filling exercise.

    I have the same problem in that mail from the DVLA is tampered with. Do not believe this is a mechanical sorting problem.

    How disgusting is it that they can keep someone's licence for over a year.
    My friend was medically induced into a coma due to a very serious head injury. He has slightly damaged vision and has been out of his coma for over a year. Chasing it every day as he needs it for work and they just keep passing the blame saying they are waiting to hear from the guy that done surgery on his eyes. Is there anything he can do to speed it up.
    Thanks in advance

    Phone the surgeon's secretary ( phone the hospital and ask to be put through to Mr X's secretary) and ask if there is a problem with him replying.
