Back on the road! DVLA said I can drive again!


Just wanted to share some good news with you all! I had my licence revoked last June due to neurological investigations. It’s now all sorted, so I can drive again! Yay! Thanks to everyone here who provided guidance and support re: the DVLA, it’s been a long 6 months! Thought I’d post this pic of me driving my pony 38 years ago, Mum up beside me on the box seat, out for a picnic in the sunshine, happy days....😃

Such a great feeling! Never thought I would get so excited to receive a brown window envelope from a government department! Thanks so much for your support Pro, always gratefully received xx

The most irritating thing for me was still having to wait - the letter from them was only valid in the UK and I was in Italy at the time with the drive back to deal with. I think it is the only time OH has driven the entire way himself except when we brought a trailer of furniture over.

Brill HW really pleased for speeding 🤣 🚙💨 xxxx

🤣 💃🏼 oh yes! Must be careful! And remember the difference between the brake and accelerator pedals 🤦‍♀️!!!😘

Dont forget forward and reverse is different too lol.oh and we still drive on the left 🤭..... xx


This photo is so uplifting! Happy for you that you are driving again! 😀

Great to hear from you D🏃‍♀️! Yes here’s to many more now that I am back behind the wheel! Hope you’re doing ok( 🐎🚗😘🤗😘

What a fantastic pic and brilliant news 🥳🥳.. so pleased for you 🚗. Some freedom back ! X

Thanks so much Tiggy - yeah freedom for sure! Was a bit weird getting back in the car for the first time - spatial awareness was a bit dodgy at first! 😱😝xx

Hehe !!! Mines not the best ! I tuck my mirrors in when something larger than a mini goes past me 😂.. love electric mirrors lol ! Xx

Yes me too - gives you that extra width! Well I managed to rip the electric wing mirror of my car by driving too close to a hedge that had this massive tree stump sticking out, I didn’t see it in time! Whoops! 😘

That is GREAT news HW! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 Time to take to the road again like Mr Toad!👍🏻👍🏻 What a lovely picture from the past and a lovely story to go with it. 😍 Fond memories to warm you on a cold winter’s day. 🥰 Have fun driving again! 🤗😘x

Yay Spotty! That’ll be me - messing about in the car! 😂 Toot Toot! Yes lovely memories of being on the road on another form of transport! Thanks for your good wishes 🤗😘🤗

That is great news. Happy motoring🤗

Indeed! I felt quite stranded initially! It was weird at not having the freedom to jump in the car, but it was made a bit easier what with lockdowns and not being able to go out anyway! Happy memories looking through a pair of forward pointing furry brown ears! Thanks for your kind wishes Stiff, always appreciated 🙏👍😘🤗😘

Well done! I’m so pleased for you xxx
