Driving again

after applying for my driving licence back, which got suspended in 2021 due to my stroke sleep apnoea and visual field . the DVLA have issued me my licence back. i cried with tears as the process from application to licence back has taken 9 months. they had to write to stroke, neurology, and sleep consultants. Thankfully called car insurance to get me added to my husband’s policy, and result we got a partial refund. so happy

Hi Chris67 that’s amazing news well done you must be so pleased, can I ask if your visual field returned or did you do a driving assessment to get your license back. I qualify for exceptional circumstances as I have lost half of my visual field on the left? Be interested to know :+1:

I had to have a visual field eye test, at spec savers for free, but no driving assessment,

That was good, did your visual field return to normal or was there still some loss. I have Hemonopia and am thinking of going through exceptional circumstances and driving assessment in the future
