I am experiencing great difficulty with the DVLA in respect of the return of my Driving licence after having to surrender it due to a Medical problem Ihavw provided all the info requested which was confirmed by the dept but was informed at that time that I may have to wait 12 weeks for a decision ( rather than the previous 8 weeks). I have read the required conditions required to be fulfilled to prove medical fitness to drive and have surpassed the medical requirements AND the time limitations by several months and am stil awaiting a reply some 20 weeks after my application The 12 weeks alluded to above passedf without comment on the 26th Sept I do not receive replies to letters and they do not take telephone calls at all!! Can you please advise on available course(s) of action regards XXXXX XXXXX
for JoC yes, just delay in any responseThey also refuse tosend aletter confirming sect88cover to drive whilst awaitng their decision as I am Told my application was refused for medical reasons whereas i had merely overlooked a Section of the questionaire at the time of the application but immediatly followed up with the answers on their requestsome short time later.it was at this time(25june 2013) they indicated that the 'consideration'of the medical information received' may take up to 12 weeks.
Thankyou for the information The problem is that they have not said anything at all.Is one supposed to just sit and wait for an indeterminate period ? In the meantime this is having an adverse effect on my wifes health having to act as my driver added to all her other normal daily tasks. Has the DVLA had its staff reduced to one person?
