just want to know if dvla can cancel my licence on word of doctor.
Expert:  Jo C. replied 6 months ago.

Thank you.

Yes, they can and they will.

He is saying there are medical grounds to revoke and the DVLA are risk adverse generally.

You can appeal their decision but not until the DVLA assert positively that they have revoked.

But you shouldn't drive if you doctor tells you not to.

Can I clarify anything for you?
