Hi, welcome to JustAnswer. My name is Jo C, I’m a barrister with 12 years of experience and I am happy to help with your question today.
how can I help ?
Do you have medical evidence that you are not a risk now?
Thanks for the information.
You do have the option of appealing to the magistrates court any decision of the DVLA to revoke your licence. However, it is not that simple. You have to show that there are reasonable grounds to do that.
If you are dealing with a situation where the DVLA have not really made that decision but are just procrastinating then you are stuck in limbo as there is really no decision to appeal. You do have the option of writing to them warning that you will take legal action about their dilatory behaviour but that rarely makes them move much faster. If you are intent then you could set them a date and the judicially review any failure to act in time but that is not a cost effective action.
If they decide against you then you can appeal to the magistrate court which will cost roughly £185 but you will need to produce medical opinion that undermines their decision and probably pay the experts for their time and views.
It is only worth doing though if your experts will attend and will say you are fit to drive.
Can I clarify anything for you?
No problem and all the best.
