is it a good or bad sign writing to doctor :)
If you are HRO, then the DVLA write to nearly everyone's GP. It's nothing to worry about normally providing there is nothing in your medical records over the last 6 years that refer to alcohol addiction or misuse. It would have been helpful if you could have spoken with your GP before they wrote to him and had at least one LFT carried out. It took my GP 9 weeks to reply, plus my official CDT reading was only 0.30%.

So I've just rang the DVLA for the first time as I reapplied for my licence on 16th May (already over 5 weeks into the process). They told me it was scanned onto the system on 10th June and waiting to be reviewed.... Does this mean I have a while to wait yet before I get the medical letter through the door?!

I applied for my licence 21st March and was scanned into the system 12th of May.
I received my medical letter 3 weeks after that so if your waiting time is anything like mine I'd imagine you'll receive your medical letter end of next week - hopefully sooner tho! Fingers crossed for you

Wow, you had quite a wait between applying to scanned onto system! Mines been scanned quicker than that so things must getting (slightly) better with the dvla. Thanks for the reply and well wishes! 🙏 Fingers crossed indeed!! 🤞

I have a theory from speaking to my husband about the different delay times for different people. Where abouts do you both live? I live in Cheshire and I've heard that things have ran quite smoothly around here for medicals from a few people around here. One guy in this group was assigned to a clinic in Altrincham near me and got his licence back quite quick. I'm wondering whether we're all categorised into our regions and some regions are going quicker than others to process through the DVLA.
Like I said, just a theory and could be totally wrong!!

I live in Greater London - my understanding is that all applications are dealt with centrally since they closed all the regional offices
