My GP charged £80 and with direct access to my records and personal knowledge completed without a hitch.
Then the eye test, I had glaucoma in left eye and Trabeculectomy op to correct, no problem I thought, joking of course.
I sent application on 8 th August and almost 8 months on following regular chasing , still don't have my licence back.
Wish I had applied for basic licence online , would have been over long ago.
We pay their wages at DVLA and they give an absolute crap service.

I actually used my own doctor who gave me a really good going over.....I thought it would just be a 'box ticking' exercise. Cost £110 but it was thorough and I now know that I am fairly fit.
As I have regular eye tests I went to my usual optician for the visual bit which cost nothing.
Probably the first place IS your own G-P. a lot depends on how you get along with them?. My G-P is very good, when I went for my HGV It was a formality. and now with the "new" Eyes, I can drive without glasses (officially).
Dropped the Class 1 and 2 though, Don't need them in the USA!. BTW how long have they given you until your next assessment? I`ve got 3years on mine but others have said theirs is shorter I know?
