Has Your Driving License Expired?

Due to Covid some drivers’ licenses that were due for renewal may be out of date. The DVLA has produced a leaflet Info 188/66 Can I drive while my application is with DVLA? https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/695575/inf188x6-can-i-drive-while-my-application-is-with-dvla.pdf#:~:text=Can%20I%20drive%20while%20my%20application%20is%20with,%28runs%20out%29%20while%20we%20are%20processing%20the%20application

The leaflet indicates that in order to continue to drive you must meet certain criteria, part of which is that your doctor must have told you that you are fit to drive.

The GPs at Nettlebed are unable to consider all of the factors involved in fitness to drive, and hence as with most GPs, are not confident to advise patients whether or not they are fit to drive. Your GP is happy to continue to provide a factual report for DVLA so that their expert medical advisers can consider this alongside other factors and decide upon fitness.
