How to prepare for the DVLA medical exam for high risk offenders
Could you please tell me what a medical exam for high risk offenders entails? Is it just a blood test or is it urine and blood? Also what do they test for in the blood? I really need my licence for my disabled child and don't want to muck this up. Could you give me as much info as possible please?
You will need to give a sample of blood and sometimes they ask for urine specimen as well. There's an interview with the GP and a physical examination too.
There are some good suggestions in this post, so read them carefully and hopefully you're going to find something which can help you.
THC and Class A substance
How long does it take for THC and Class A substance to get out of your blood system? Have medical coming up, how long do you wait for your appointment with dvla doctor?

Class A 3 to 5 day and THC 30 to 90 days depends on potency and usage

Banned for alcohol misuse
Ok I've not been banned for drink driving!
I was banned for alcohol misuse I've never drunk and drove!
Do you know if I need a medical as I don't come under the high risk offenders?
If I do any pointers how to pass?
Milk thistle I've read and testosterone.
I've been drinking through my ban and I'm worried.

Is there a time limit for being a high risk offender?
I was banned from driving after refusing a breath test whilst riding a moped on a provisional license. This occurred some 25 years ago. I have not driven a car or motorcycle/moped since and have still not learned to drive.
I recently reapplied for my provisional license and have been told I have to take the 'High risk offender' medical - after 25 years! The conviction is clearly now 'Spent'.
Do I really have to go through the expense and delay of a DVLA medical after 25 years or is there a time limit we are not told about?
