Dear Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency,
Please can you provide the criteria your medical group use to 'label' individuals as either alcohol dependent or alcohol misuses. (both labels impact an applicant differently)
In addition, the factors/evidence used by the DVLA that upgrades an applicant from misuse to dependency?
As part of a SAR, is it reasonable for the applicant to be provided with your 'case management system' log? to ensure transparency and demonstrate robust standards to fairly assess people with medical conditions.
