"It is the manufactures own rules, but they will not look at a machine bought overseas under warranty. If you ask ResMed, they will only say that they will not honer any warranty if you buy a machine abroad. They know that they can't stop you…"

Kath Hope replied to Chris Vesey's discussion Dvla / hospital
"Yes it's annoying Chris.  However, due to the fact that the DVLA themselves don't appear to know how to handle this all correctly (it depends who you reach at the time) then it's advisable not to email or ring them, but to rely…"
