So I’m now in an awful mood after my phone call with the DVLA. I rang up to see where my provisional licence application was at, which I sent off over a month ago now and haven’t heard anything.
The guy on the phone looked up my details to see where it was at and said that my case has been sent to a manager and a decision won’t be made for another three weeks. They have had it over a month now and it’s going to take at least another 3 weeks for them to decide. And it doesn’t sound promising the fact that it’s been sent to a manager, does that mean the first person that looked at it couldn’t decide to give me it or not so they have had to send it further up the line.
The thing what is so frustrating is that I know I’m safe to drive, and I’m doing a lot better, my depression is a heck of a lot better and I’m starting to come out of it gradually, yeah I still have bad days but most of the time I’d say I’m doing okay. I feel like if they decline me again I will feel like I’m getting punished even though I’m getting better. And I am petrified I won’t get it which will mean I won’t be able to drive to college next year and my mum won’t be able to go to Dubai as often as she will have to continue driving me around.
I’m just so pissed off and frustrated with it all. I had a nice weekend and just coming home and hearing that they still haven’t made a decision and how long it’s going to take has put me in an awful mood.
