Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
Just to be clear the DVLA have revoked your licence but your surgeon says you are fine?
Ok. If they try to you can appeal that decision.
It will then go before a Magistrates Court and your Consultant Ophthalmologists can give an opinion to say you are safe to drive.
But you do have a right to appeal which you should consider.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Indeed. But the Consultant Ophthalmologists can give evidence to say you are OK to drive.
Does that clarify?
Ok - I would not surrender it, I certainly would consider applying in 10 weeks.
But dont surrender it.
I see, indeed its a difficult position to be in.
I would therefore re-apply once your eyes have settled down and you have new glasses
Yes of course. I would recommend you wait and then re-sit it when all has settled with the new glasses.
I would sit now. Then you will fail, you can appeal and then get evidence from your Consultant Ophthalmologists.
Indeed. But you can appeal and your Consultant Ophthalmologists can give evidence.
Yes I would do that
