Picking my car up this Saturday!! VW Golf GT tdi 2.0.
Insurance was £540 fully comp, ideal.
Got a pay rise already, £20ph now which will help me pay off the car which my friend is giving me on 0% finance!!
Gonna be nice to be able to drive to work, so much easier. I’ve had 6 years of buses & trains, total ball ache!!
The punishment isn’t the ban, it’s the medical & being patient!!
Good luck to everyone who’s waiting. I’m an ex drug user who got done for 2 drink drives 6 days apart. I’m on pregabalin for a back injury. So there’s hope for you all trust me 😂
March applied for licence
May received letter to book medical
June did medical for bloods
End of June GP contacted & DG1 completed
July told need to do piss test
August did 2nd medical for piss test
September got 1 year licence

Again good luck to you all…
Fab good luck to u x

Well after checking online religiously every morning noon and night, I've just checked now and have been granted a 1yr license as of midnight tonight. I had my medical on 15th August, so it's taken 5 weeks from the date of the medical for them to contact my GP, make a decision and grant me a 1yr license. Even though it's only a 12 month one, I'm over the moon! Just need to look for insurance now as I'm away for the weekend and can't get out on the road until Monday.

I was a HRO (two convictions, 2yrs apart) so if anyone wants to ask any questions about my experience, go for it.
