If this is your application form and you are HRO, then sorry, the news is not good in the sense that you will not get your licence back in January. You have still to go through your Medical, then they will probably write to your GP, and this all takes time.I have just called DVLA- they said my form had been passed to the medical team when I called two weeks ago, then today when I spoke to them after a 40 minute wait the person said she had just passed it through now and not to bother calling back for a couple of weeks as it was unlikely anything will change soon. My ban is up at the beginning of January and would really like to get this sorted, it’s so frustrating. Please does anyone have any good news/messages of hope? It feels like my life is on hold.
I applied on the 15th July 2021 and received my licence back on 10th February 2022 for a ban that expired on 12th October 2021.
But I would keep calling because, as you have discovered, they are 'economical with the truth.'
