You do not have a claim for compensation. They have to investigate medical conditions that may affect road safety. You do have an appeal though if they are saying they will revoke on medical grounds permanently though.
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.
Unfortunately the delay is typical of the DVLA and cannot be challenged.Nobody has a right to drive in the UK. It is privilege and they can revoke if medical conditions arise that compromise road safety which is paramount.
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.
However, you do have an appeal. You will need to get reliable medical evidence to the effect that your condition under it's current management will not compromise road safety.Can I clarify anything for you?Jo
