You are having a nightmare, hope you get good news soon from them,
I've read on here that stored blood in lab can get contaminated and another blood sample is required ffs, I didn't drink over Xmas just in case
Well youl be fine then its just a waiting game,a very unfair frustrating game at that tgsts a great score how was your drinking pattern before that I went to a friends and had a glass of wine on the 14th of November and had blood 8th of Dec
Didn't drink for 7 weeks before private medic test 0.5 still no drinking till dvla test 8th Dec,
You will be fine 2 to 3 weeks no drinking cdt goes back to normal after couple drinks, ill let you how I get on through the week
If it's any concellation Anna, my ban ended a month ago and I'm still waiting for my licence! You are not on your own and I share your pain.
I did my HRO medical on the 19th November and the DVLA have since written to my doctor. I learned last week, my GP had still not returned my medical report despite a telephone conversation with them on the 18th December!!!!!
I was like a volcano when I found out. The GP's have something like a 4-6 week timescale to return the form which doesn't help people like ourselves who are waiting, waiting, waiting..........
It's like dealing with a typical system of red tape and bureaucracy where the ones affected by it all are us (the banned drivers)!!!
I started a new job last week and commuting to work in the current Covid lockdown climate is far from ideal.
I almost look at a driving ban as a three course meal with only the main course being digestable.
The starter is the arrest/court/community service which is very difficult to get out of the way.
The main course is the easiest part because you just learn to absorb the main period of the ban.
However, the desert is dealing with DVLA medical proceedure and getting reinstated - the dessert is just as stressful as the starter.
If you had this three course meal in a restaurant you wouldn't go back - the point I'm making you wouldn't get banned again!
Getting the licence back is almost like leaving the restaurant after settling the bill but you wouldn't leave a tip!!!!!!
Its so true its making me really angry insaid toothed doctor at the medical so whats the procedure now do they get untouch with my doctor he said no,how that bloke has his licence backnafter 3 weeks plus being his 3rd drink drive ban is beyond me he should never have his licence back w@@nker im furious lol
