Thanks for getting back to me - look forward to hearing your result! Did they contact your gp at all?! I need to answer yes to mental health from the past 3 years!
They wrote to risums (drug and alcohol team) not my gp. Don’t worry to much about that , best thing to do is ask your doctor or psychiatrist to back your app. I ticked yes to mental health due to depression (on 15mg matazapeen) yes to drugs (on 10ml of methadone) been clean for over 12 months got testing to back me up. Before I started this process, 1. I phoned my gp to confirm they would back me(they said yes) 2. Phoned my key worker in risums and they also said yes. Aslong as you are addressing your problems you will be fine

Thank you. Yes I have my license back and I’m back on road finally :)

Letter arrived this morning from the DVLA, enclosed was the results from my blood sample taken as part of the medical.

Total CDT Level recorded was 0.6%, so pretty much baseline.

Total abstinence from alcohol before the medical - 998 days, so yeah pretty much as I expected. Happy days.

For anyone worrying about the CDT test I wouldn’t. To be fair Im not a heavy drinker but I do like a beer every week. I was also in Seville for the football 3wks before my medical and had a stag do when I came back.

Both were events where I drank a lot more than usual. I was 13 days without a drink before my medical and my CDT result was 0.7%.

Did they contact your gp
13 days mate don’t listen to anyone on here that says any different I was told by a dvla medical doctor, that they see it that alcoholics won’t be able to abstain for two weeks. I was a weekend drinker and I had my results today 0.5 and they contacted my gp because of mental health (ain’t depresseants and I had to admit to drug use.
But before I started this I made sure my doctor would back me mate.

I ticked yes for mental health (depression) and yes for drugs but I am on 10mg of methadone so my doctor was aware
It will be on there somewhere but I haven’t directly gone to them as it being a problem
Have a chat with your gp mucca phone the surgery and have a gp to speak to you cos being on the same page is vital.
You will fly the drug test anyway by the sound of it. But the official advice on weaker drugs like weedis 6 months absence but a urine test can only prove 28.
Find out if the doctor has on you and match up.
Don’t drink for 13 days before your blood test and licence sorted mate

I am on matazapeen and 10ml methdone mate but I have been off everything for like 2 years. The questionnaire asks you have you in the last 3 years done
Weed
Coke
Pills
heroin
Then when how much.
Your gp will know when you spoke about it . Match your doctor and you will be good 👍
