Ok understood that part, I am just thinking about the chances of them asking my GP for my record or not.
You were caught twice in 10 years, it is almost certain you will be fully investigated. The DVLA treat being caught twice as a habbit that may indicate dangerous drinking patterns. Anything that you have even mentioned to your doctor in passing will be present in your records, GP's are meticulous note takers to cover their own arses.

I'm a 22 year old student, I went to see my doctor for a chest infection and he asked me how much I drank. I told him 20-24 units thinking the weekly reccomendation for units was still 21 for males, turns out it's now 14 a week. Forgot all about that appointment since November and a revoke letter landed on my parents door step. Revoked for 6 months for misuse when I don't even misuse alcohol, if anything I actually drink less than my friends!! Now have to start the process of gathering evidence and LFT's to support getting my licence back.

Ok so HRO with 2 offences in 10 years are definitely getting investigated and other HRO like double limit/refused sample can still get away with good CDT test result?

I blew 3 times the limit, first offence, was fully investigated and received a 3 year licence. Judging by this forum more people are now getting investigated than not.

One last thing guys, when they request your records from GP, are they asking for your full medical report or is it just the questionnaire that the GP will need to fill, which he/she will then decide if what to and what not to state in the questionnaire.
They won't be asking the full medical report! However there's enough Questions requested within the forms to cover all aspects of your health including abuse running back 6 years GP.
If the dvla are unhappy with the report!! They can go back as far as they like then make a judgement based upon your fitness to drive

This is my point then, even if they were to contact my GP, I have no such bad history of alcohol except that I mentioned to her myself about a binge drink and me getting haemorrhoids after the night, my GP will have to be very harsh on me to fill out the form and mention there that I have alcohol problems, I am just hoping they don’t contact GP at all which is why I want to ask Jadeybabe45 if she was a 2nd time offender too.

I am sending my license application this afternoon and I should be getting a reply to go and book medical in few weeks, my ban ends on 4th of June so I am hoping I don’t get classed as misuse or dependent and then have to wait another 6 months.

Book an appointment with your GP, explain that you are trying to get your licence back and you are HRO and ask the GP to note that you do not have an alcohol problem and have an LFT done for the records. That way you will have your GP's support if they do contact.

If your HRO they will most certainly contact your GP for further evidence of history, it's up to you along with your GP support to put a case forward you do not have missuse issues

Your GP will be sent a medical form DD2, this form is about 29 questions long and all are related to alcohol issues including binge, misuse dependence and wether your drinking is under control, they will cover everything.....
