Just to keep this in line with what the DVLA are saying, they give 6-10 weeks as the timescale they are aiming for.Yes I did. I called them and typed in my medical appointment time and date. Thanks for giving me hope.
I waiting 10 weeks, then received a letter saying they are writing to my GP. Therefore I had my medical on 19th July and I’m still waiting for my license.
Best of luck to you, I really hope they don’t contact your GP and you get your license back before Christmas! Hang in there.
