Hello everyone. I'm brand new to this site and very happy to have found it. I'm 33 and suffered a minor stroke on 9th January 2017. It left me with a visual field defect on my lower left side. After reporting it to the doctor/ DVLA my driving licence was quickly revoked. I was diagnosed with a minor stroke following an MRI. Investigations into the cause of the stroke found a Patent Foramen Ovale (PFO) in my heart (a hole) and this was closed on 18th December 2017. I've had no other symptoms other than my vision issues and I've been able to go about my life as normal (other than not being able to drive). I'm due to take a driving assessment, requested by the DVLA, next week. I was just wondering what people's experiences were of the assessment and what the pass rate is? I still feel very confident in my driving abilities even though it's been over a year since driving. Thanks in advance.
