When was she diagnosed?
How long has she been under the mental health treatment for?
Who has given her the “medical reasons”.
It appears that your wife’s GP is not even aware ofthe issue here. Can you please confirm?
The psychiatrist is not under any duty to advise your wife that he has advised the DVLA but for certain notifiable conditions, he is under a duty to advise the DVLA. It would be for the advising psychiatrist to advise DVLA that she should have the licence returned. The CPN just does not have the same clout. It may be that the psychiatrists take notice but the ultimate decision is the psychiatrists.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Please rate the service positive. It’s an important part of the process by which experts get paid.
I can still clarify things for you.
The decision is up to DVLA, but they will not normally go against the medical experts decision.
