Another step forward in my quest to get my driving licence back. At long last the medical department of the DVLA have finally looked at my case.I have a 'very slight' vision impairment that has shown up. I will receive a letter from the DVLA to ask me to go to Specsavers to have a test as they are the DVLA approved opticians, luckily I have recently been to the optician to have my eyes tested and get new glasses so she had mentioned that this might happen but not to worry about it. Although I am very hopeful that I am on the home stretch in getting my licence back I cannot believe how long it has taken the DVLA to get to this stage and I am a priority case apparently,think they have a different idea of what priority means. So keeping everything crossed that I'm nearly there ?
Massive step back! DVLA have had me jumping through hoops for the last 4 months and because they can't make a decision based on the eye test results from Specsavers they now want me to have another test at a hospital in Glasgow - approx 5 hours from where we live! Better yet - due to coronavirus the hospital are unfortunately not taking appointments, if only the DVLA had pulled their finger out at the start this could have been done before - so fed up with them ?
I had the same problem. Specsavers perscribed me glasses. It was a fab feeling getting behind the wheel again, and gaining your independance. :)
