DVLA mystery


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
