It appears you received quite a lot of misinformation there Bob, from people who should have known better!
And don't know about the 'new rules that came in a couple of years ago' but I went through the process just a couple of months ago and it was far simpler, and cheaper, than what you experienced
I made just ONE visit, a couple of weeks before my 70th, to a private doctor who did my medical and completed the form. I then went straight to the DOP in Dhyrenia, where they advised me it would be better to return and apply AFTER my birthday for the new License!
This I did, everything was accepted with no problem whatsoever, I was given a temporary paper license followed a few weeks later by the plastic one, valid for three years!
BTW, wouldn't be surprised if, when you get it, your license does actually run until 2022!
