Wonder if someone could help me out here please:
I was disqualified for 13 months as a HRO in late 2016.
I only reapplied for my licence in March this year. I had put on the form that I had had a seizure and the DVLA swiftly sent me a form to fill in. This seizure was not related to alcohol but to changing GPs and being without long-term medication for several days. It was a one-off an happened several years ago. I made this clear on the form.
I returned the form to DVLA just before the COVID lockdown.
Then nothing from DVLA until this week. They haven't contacted my GP as I thought they would. I was expecting their correspondence to be about me now having to arrange a medical.
Instead, they sent me DR1 (alcohol) and DR2 (illicit drugs) forms to complete and return. I've never taken illicit drugs.
Is this standard practice, to send these forms before notification to attend a medical? Is the medical the next thing I should expect after I have returned these and they have no doubt contacted my GP for further information (my GP strongly supports me getting my licence back, if that makes any difference). Or could they refuse my application before even letting me go to a medical (I have been teetotal for over a year, and my GP will confirm this).
Thanks for reading.
