Been waiting nearly a year for my medical driving licence - is this normal?

Is it normal to have been waiting for my medical driving licence renewal for nearly a year? I sent the application in June 2021 and I have still not had it back yet.

There are currently long delays with paper driving licence applications for drivers with medical conditions but it is not acceptable to wait nearly a year. We suggest you make an official complaint to the DVLA. If that does not speed things up then you could also try contacting your local MP to make a complaint on your behalf.
