Apply for Licence early


My ban is due to end September 17th 2019 so long as I pass my medical which I am confident of as I have been abstaining since 1st Jan and plan to remain doing so. My question is can I apply for my licence now in order to try and do the medical early? I am looking at a potential new job and I’d like to be sure I will have my license in line with taking the role but to do that I would need to do the medical much sooner.

I appreciate the ban will remain until 17/9/19 but as long as I knew all was ok and it would be returned then that would be great.

Has anyone applied before the 90days they state?
You cannot get a valid medical before the 90 day application time, and even then you have to wait for DVLA to write to you detailing which doctor you should attend.
