I had the medical 7 weeks ago and DVLA wrote to my doctor. I've chased it up . GP completed the reply but DVLA not received. My question is. does GP respond by email or put a reply form in the post? I am trying to get a time scale of when I can get my licence back. Thanks in advance for any replies.

I would ask your GP. The DVLA said the same to me . My GP had sent it off , but then again emailed it and posted a hard copy . The DVLA seems not to receive a vast amount of correspondence that has been sent .

No point stressing as I can't affect it.

I am lead to believe the correspondence is generally paper based as I made a recent enquiry with my own GP and the paperwork was still in their pigeon.

The DVLA were until recently still using fax machines, but most places don't use them as they have become a redundant piece of 20th century office equipment.

If you haven't seen him in six years, your own case will be pretty straight forward - you are on good course to get a ten year licence. You never know - after six years, Dr Knobhead might have retired or moved on!

I agree no point in stressing. However , you can influence by monitoring and progress chasing both GP and DVLA . Hopefully it will get sorted soon.

They can access info. I’ve never had an issue with that. They put you on hold to see any updated info they have on you after asking security questions.
