I became well in Autumn/Winter 2011, was off medication and discharged by Psychiatrist in May 2012. This Feb my driving licence expired as I was put on a 12 month licence due to PP. I've been dealing with the DVLA since last November over the renewal and it is still ongoing! They now want me to see my GP for a medical examination to help them decide my fitness to drive. It's crazy and makes my blood boil, the number of letters, phone calls and now £130 unnecessary cost for a medical I don't need and I hardly think the GP will have heard of PP let'll own know how to assess in a few mins if I'm still ill or not. It's a farce!
