6 week window for HROs


Well-known member
Although I've not got a date for my medical,the dvla have already written to my gp, as I ticked yes to alcohol misuse and mental health, I've spoken to a practice that are still doing the medicals, but there could be a wait until January!!
This is how the backlog is affecting us!
I explained to the receptionist that dvla have a 6 week window, to be told they have extended it to 12,any experience???
I attended my medical outside of the 6 week window (no fault of my own, just no appointments available) and DVLA told me that they are aware of the backlog with doctors so not to worry too mich about it
