hi there i've just had my medical on the 15/03/10 and i think i've passed altho no results back yet. i like to drink wine but only on the weekend and have done for some years, but i done the drivewise course which made me realise for a women that i was drinking in units far more than my weekly safe quoter. so for the last 6 weeks i've not touched a drop of any alcohole and it's been really easy really. at the doctors you pay £96 pound to the doctor and have to show id like a passport, the first thing the doctor done was asked me my hight and weight but did'nt check either and then asked to check my skin so as a lady i was asked to raise my top to about neck level, coz i guess had i have been drinking my skin on my chest would have been reddish in patches. the second thing i had to do was to have my urine tested, im guessing as i did not ask, but i think that was for drugs and lastly i had my blood taken which was sent away to the hospital, but i was told that the dvla would know the results in about three days so if i wanted to know there desision sooner i could call them. the doctor said she had to write a report about me after i left, and it was going to be a really good one but as i had nothing to hide i came across as normal and positive. so all being good i will have my license back about 2 weeks after medical.
