DVLA can revoke driver licences (take them away) or you may need to surrendered it due to poor health. There is a set process to reapply for your driving licence if you had a medical condition.
LICENCE REVOKED? This section explains how to apply for your driver's licence if it got taken away (revoked).
You will get a letter from the DVLA if they take away your licence. The same applies if you must surrender it or they refuse an application for a driving licence.
The DVLA letter will have information on how long you must wait before applying for a new licence.
Note: Once you receive the letter from the DVLA you can reapply eight (8) weeks before the end of the stated period.
Reapply for a Car or Motorcycle Licence
You need to complete a D1 application form to reapply for a licence following a health condition. You must also send the correct form that relates to your particular medical condition. Send both forms together to the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency.
In some cases, you will need to provide evidence of your fitness to drive. Check the information stated about this in the letter from the DVLA.
Note: Contact DVLA or a Post Office to get a D1 pack. Your doctor must support your request to get your driving licence back. Thus, you must meet the medical standards for driving a vehicle.
