    The DVLA take a lot of stick about long waits for driving licences so I thought I'd give them a good report.
    I had my medical for my driving licence renewal with CI entitlement tuesday 2 august and I posted it of with photo and aplication that evening, I received my new licence yesterday 10 august , so I'm now over the moon and can drive my mh 4100 kgs for another 3 years without having to down size.
    Well done DVLA

    I have no problem with the length of time DVLA took once I had sent off the forms-but I do have a problem with having to find an independant GP surgery because our local surgery only does 'private medicals' as,and when,they feel like it-and they charge £150.

    Then,when I find a surgery that will do it when I want it done,and only charges £90.I find that the greater part of the medical is me answering questions and the Dr ticking boxes-so apart from blood pressure and a urine test,oh and a joke of an eye test I didnt really feel I'd got 'value for money' :BigGrin:

    What did get,of course,was my license-and I 'spose we're all prepared to jump through the hoops for that !!
