Hello Alex my name is ***** ***** have not made an appeal to the courts yet.. we are not sure what path to follow at the moment, reading through the letters he received from the DVLA he could try appealing to the DM business support with any medical evidence or information that would help his case... which i can only see as a medical examination D4.. which i hope his doctor can arrange for him... he is definitely not epileptic.. and it seems to point to a drug called sertraline he was taking for depression and one of the listed side effects of the drug was seizures ..he has not taken the drug since..it also states in a paragraph from the DVLA that it is advised that a person should not drive for six months. it does not say compulsery five years ,, so they seem to be conflicting rules.. we just unsure which path to take first ...x
I would get his GP to arrange an appointment and provide a second opinion medical assessment. That can then go to the DVLA and you can ask the DM unit to review this.
If that is not successful you have a right to appeal to the Magistrates Court.
The appeal will be heard by 3 Magistrates and you can present why the medical evidence is wrong and what evidence you have to support your appeal. The DVLA will say why they object.
Then the Court will make a decision.
But the first step is to get a GP medical report. Then appeal to the DM unit, then finally to the Court.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
what rating in your opinion do you have on him having any success in getting his HGV licence back before five years... do you no of any success stories?
I think if there is no history then the odds are in his favour.
Does that help?
