    Default section 88 for old ban and HRO medical

    hi
    I was banned in 2004 for two years so I have been eligible to get my licence returned for quite a while now, but have never seriously needed to do so, so I didn't bother.

    I was hoping someone will clarify as to whether I can drive while awaiting the HRO medical, as long as I have actually applied to the DVLA for its return?

    Simple answer to this, yes you have to do a medical, the time lapse does not make any difference, and no, you cannot drive pending the outcome of the medical, that option was removed 4 or so years ago. You have to wait for the results to be considered and the decision made by DVLA medical section.

    Thanks for the speedy response !
    I thought it was as you state, but also thought I better check with wiser heads than mine

    Probably older... not necessarily wiser!
