Thank you for your advice, I will write to the DVLA for an explanation.

 

Kind Regards,

Hello Alan,

 

Normally the DVLA will advise a driver to resit the test in 12 months if they are borderline otherwise it is normally every three years. However you could call them for clarification.

Hi,

I'm not sure if I have right forum topic here but I would be grateful if someone would advise me.

I am 76 and have had Glaucoma for many years. Since I first reported my glaucoma to the DVLA (2007?) I have taken the DVLA binocular vision (Esterman) test and on each occasion my licence has been renewed for three years. This year (2019) however after taking the test again, my licence has only been renewed for one year.

As far as I know my field vision has not deteriorated since my previous test in 2016 and, if anything it should have imroved since, I had Phaco Demulsification and Viscocanaloscopy operations in both eyes in 2017.

Should/can I appeal to the DVLA to have my licence extended to 2022 (3 years) or must I accept their unexplained decision to renew it for one year only?

 

Kind Regards,

Alan Wilson

I decided to pull out of the Magistrates Court process when I found out that it costs £125 for court cost. I also had a letter from DVLA saying that if the court found against me then their costs would be considerable and I would be liable. I wasn't prepared to gamble as I only have my pension as income and may not have been able to pay the costs.

So how did it go for you? Were you successful in getting licenced?
