    I drive a 3500kg MH and when I got a new licence at 70 I lost the c1 bit that lets me drive up to 7500kg, my question is can I have a medical now I am 71 and regain c1 or do I have to do a full test etc.

    Yes after a heart bypass opp. I had to do the treadmill test in order to get my license back. From start to finish it took 6 months. If you want to discuss give me a call on my mobile. 07530162258! Barrie
