    With abstenance for that long you should have no problem with the CDT blood test as part of the medical. What will your answer be to 'any alcohol issues in the past 2-3 years where you have consulted your GP?'

    First you should pass the CDT Test if you have not drank for that long.

    Second, have you looked at the medical questionaire that you will be asked to fill in at the medical, if not you'll find it in the .gov website in the dvla documents.

    and last does your GP have any concerns about your alcohol consumption, if so be careful you don't contradict that on your questionnaire.

    what you have to remember is they treat you as having an "illness" that affects your driving until you prove otherwise.

    you prove it by.....


    1. passing the CDT Test
    2. passing the physical examination
    3. filling in your dvla questionnaire in a way that shows you are fit to drive.
    4. Your GP confirming on his questionnaire that you do not have an alcohol problem, if you are being treated for alcohol related illness at hospital he may refer dvla to your consultant
    5. Your consultant confirms you are fit to drive.


    its simple but what clouds the issues are you having a drink problem within the last 3 years and definitely within the last 12 months, but if your GP has no knowledge of alcohol problems you are ok.

    good luck!

    Well I would definitely say no to misusing alcohol within the last 6 months.

    There is no medical history of you having an alcohol problem so don't give them any reason to think you have one.

    Just put your gps name down and put N/A for consultant.

    You'll be fine. Let us know how it goes
