Hi all, CDT test booked for 7th of DEC. Have been drinking fairly daily, maybe 6 pints of stella most days. Am I likely to be under the threshold if I abstain until my test? Thanks
Sorry not a reply but a question. How long from sending firm back did you wait for reply to book cut test please.x

Honestly, it took about 10-12 months to get this far but I am a yearly renewal so have been driving s88 so it hasn’t been an issue

Seriously, I can’t understress the importance of keeping on at the DVLA. It really he who shouts loudest. I waited longer than this even, and it only ever moved when I pushed them.

Some of our files are just sticky I guess because others seem to fly through. But if you’re in the slow lane, like I was, you have to pedal a little.

The medical department have such a high caseload backlog because of COVID (it wasn’t just us drunks awaiting their holiest of attention - it was also the driving-eager elderly, the infirm, the junkies, the partially blind, plus anybody else that out of no literal choice of their own had to wait on the DVLA to get their flabby Welsh arses into gear; oh and with some medics probably being needed and/or ‘volunteering’ to try and save lives elsewhere) that yes, it simply just became a mountainous volume of work for them to churn through.

So I guess if you’re lucky enough to get moved forward quickly, placing a call is certainly not going to have been any coincidence at all. So keep on at them every 4-6weeks - it is not at all going to hurt if you’re friendly and polite (and of course are good at imploring people with just the right pinch of desperation and false admiration in that teleperson’s helpfulness and character ;) ).
