My wife's driving licence is an annual renewal because of medical reasons, she has early onset Alzhiemers. Her licence expired in early October. I sent DVLA all the paperwork in early august. On Nov 10 I managed to speak to an operator at DVLA and they confirmed the had received the paperwork, and a case worker will be assigned in due course. It'll be 5 months soon since they've had the paperwork, and 3 months since the licence expired. They put the delay down to the pandemic and that people have to be in the office to process it. As of mid-november the GP had not recieved any request from DVLA. What a shambles they are (DVLA that is). I did approach the GP about section 88, but they said they are not in a position to asses driving standards (which, in all honestly, sounds fair enough to me). Anyone else in this 'boat' ?
