I’m so sorry for such an angry post but I need to rant and there is no one at home (even the bloody dog has gone out for the day!)
I contact DVLA in March when my diagnosis was confirmed. Filled the 5 page report in as much as I could, sent it off. I then received a letter saying they were contacting my neurologist to confirm I was fit to drive.
I drive a 4×4, I pull a horse trailer and was looking to upgrade to a lorry as my horse doesn’t travel well in the trailer.
Well today I received a letter from the DVLA dated 01/05/19 saying I have 14 days from the letter date to return my driving license and apply for a 3 year medical license!! It’s the bloody 13th already!!! I rang them up and eventually spoke to a bloke who kept saying “you need to get the paperwork back by the 14th or we will revoke your license”. I confirmed that the conversation was being recorded and told him they will get it back as soon as I can get it done. Now it’s a mad dash to get a photo done and get the paperwork in the post tonight!
I now also can not get my lorry as I need to apply for a Maximum Authorised Mass license which requires a higher medical standard. If you have MS your not allowed to apply!
I thought I was coping with my diagnosis really well until all this 💩 happened today but now I’m not! 😭😭😭
Can someone please cheer me up??
