Have you asked the DVLA to reconsider recently?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

No which is why I'm asking if I can ?

Expert:  Jo C. replied 2 years ago.
Oh yes, you can ask the DVLA to reconsider at any time.
There isn't really very much point though unless you are going to be able to submit medical evidence to the effect that you are safe to drive.
The DVLA will send you for an independent assessment which will be decisive. If that is adverse then realistically they will not back down.
You can appeal their decision to the Magistrates Court although, again, it is one thing to have a right of appeal and another to have a good chance of appeal. Without proper medical evidence it would be a waste of time and money.
But, yes, you can ask them to reconsider.
Can I clarify anything for you?
