The Daily Telegraph
sir – Janet Milliken’s letter (“Denied the freedom of driving by DVLA sloth”, September 5) struck a chord.
Like her, I attended Specsavers, where I had my eyes tested by a young man who had completed his training four months earlier. His opinion was accepted by the DVLA and my licence renewed.
Interestingly, however, the opinion of my cataract surgeon (a professor with more than 35 years’ experience in eye surgery), who stated that I was fit to drive, was not considered acceptable. Is there an explanation? Jennie Bedford
