  • ICD Fitted - Driving Licence Revoked for 6 Months - Can I appeal


    I have a ICD fitted and have had my licence revoked for 6 months. I had it fitted beginning of November 2021

    I understand from the DVLA website that 6 months is usually associated with having an ICD fitted due to sustained VT. My diagnosis is NON sustained VT and only on exertion ( I was running) and only 2 episodes in 3 years.

    Since I gave up the running I’ve had no episodes of VT but the hospital still wanted me to have the ICD fitted ‘just in case’

    As well as the ICD I am also on some medication as further protection against any further episodes of VT

    my question is, if I write to the DVLA explaining the above do you think they will review the decision to revoke my license for 6 months and let me have my license back sooner.

    Well, if you don't ask, you don't get.
    No harm in trying, but DVLA tend to err on side of caution.
    Perhaps a letter from your GP regarding your fitness to drive will assist your application
