  1. So my husband has passed his driving assessment. He has a full licence. He is so happy. It’s been so hard for him but we always focused on there being hope. So proud of him. For anyone thinking of appealing under exceptional circumstances good luck and it is possible to get your licence back.
  2. Yes will start ringing DVLA next week. It was difficult due to Covid restrictions as I sat in my car in car park waiting for my husband. After his drive the assessors spoke to my husband in test car. So I don’t know what was said to him. When they all got out of the car they said to us both that the decision usually takes a couple of weeks and to push DVLA if we had not heard anything. I didn’t want to be pushy and ask about my husband’s driving as I took it as a positive they they didn’t want to talk to me. We were grateful that the assessment took place as Covid rates rising. It’s been a fight to get to this stage so although it’s hard waiting we can be patient for a bit longer. Thanks Johnnie M, will keep you updated.
  3. My husband was very nervous on the day. The staff were lovely and very supportive. During his cognitive assessment he made a couple of errors but they did stress that it would be his driving that would count more. He managed to wear his mask the whole time. He thinks that his driving was fine. I didn’t hear their feedback for his driving as I was in my car in the car park. They did though say to me that it would be a couple of weeks before we hear from DVLA. And that I should chase them for a decision which I took to be positive. The hardest part of the day for my husband was handing back the provisional licence. He has enjoyed being back on the road so it will be frustrating being a passenger again. Hopefully we will hear from the DVLA soon and I will let you know the outcome. Thanks for your good wishes.
  4. Thank you so much for your reply. My husband has had his driving assessment brought forward to this Tuesday. So we are both feeling pretty nervous ! He has been given a provisional licence so it’s been good to see him on the road. He has very good awareness helps that he has driven for over 30 years. Today we are going to practice with him wearing a mask so if anyone has tips to stop fogging up when you wear glasses and mask we would be grateful. It’s taken 2 years to get to this point. He was devastated when he lost his license but reading about other people’s experiences in forums like this gave us hope. Thank you again for your words of encouragement.
  5. My husband has a driving assessment at the end of this month. Following a stroke his license was revoked due to cognitive impairment and visual field deficit. His appeal has finally resulted in a provisional driving license and a driving assessment. We would be grateful for any information on what to expect.
