    you disagree with DVLA’s decision

    You can write to DVLA if you disagree with the decision to stop you driving. You must be able to provide relevant information that was not included in the original assessment.

    You must also include:
    • proof that you meet the required standards for driving (these are explained in the decision letter DVLA sent you)
    • the reference number from your decision letter

    You can also appeal the decision if you contact your local magistrate’s court within 6 months, or your local sheriff’s court in Scotland within 21 days.

    You may want to get legal advice before you appeal - you might be able to get legal aid to pay for it.

    You must tell DVLA in writing if you choose to appeal.

      6 Pints was the guidance they were referring to my friend said the round figure of 20 so significantly over guidance but that is the point it is only guidance not a law. You would have thought that someone being honest was less of a risk than someone who sat there and lied by saying they only had two pints a week knowing it was nearer 22. The person who lied would be out driving unless it showed on a blood test but if they had the wherewithal to lie they would also have the knowledge to abstain for a while before a medical. My friend has booked an appointment with a solicitor to start an appeal.
