I have finally received a letter from the DVLA about my driving licence renewal. After four months, they have come to a decision.
After contacting the hospital they are still insisting on sending me to ‘Specsavers’, a High Street optician shop, for a ‘definitive test’. Not only that, but my local branch of that shop just three miles south of here does not have the suitable equipment, so I have to go to Fakenham which is eleven miles away, or Norwich, which is almost twenty miles away.
As far as the DVLA is concerned, the state of the art testing equipment in Norwich Hospital Eye Clinic is not good enough for their purposes. Instead they believe that a small High Street shop has better equipment for their purposes.
If I fail this one-off test for any reason, my driving licence will be permanently revoked, with no appeal.
Is it any wonder I am so fed up?
