The problem was in my original post, so why ask?
pleas read again,
I feel this is a mistake on their part or some invalid information supplied but does this really mean I am driving illegally until this has been sorted?
but if I drive and my eyesight is ok then is that still illegal?
would they revisit my declaration to check if they are at error or is it now down to me to prove this?
Also, if I do drive and I get stopped then what is the chance of me being fined and points if it can be proved my eyesight is ok and the revocation was wrong?
Yes I meant DVLA but not on appeal but if I phone them tomorrow and ask them where this came from and why they came to this decision just in case they have me mixed up with someone else, will they review?
So you recommend that I do not drive until they have re-instated my license?
Also have can they say I am revoked in a letter dated 30 Oct 2013 from 31 Oct 2013 and I only get the letter today (07 Nov, some 7 days later)?
So if I get an optician to confirm I am ok to drive with vision correction then they are likely to re-instate my licence?
Also, this is highly inconvenient as I have to travel 20 miles to work and I suppose they will argue I should use public transport though?
one final question. If I get a report that my eyesight is ok how long roughly should I expect not to be able to drive assuming the DVLA accept this?
