Hi My dad has had dementia for about 6 years now. He is capable of many things such as washing, dressing and he mobilises independently. However he is unable to read and find the correct words to hold a conversation, he has a child like view of the world around him and needs prompting at times to remember new activities. I am writing this as I am worried about his driving. He still has a driving licence. The DVLA are aware that my dad has dementia via his doctor and I have also emailed them. They wrote to my dad and asked him to complete a driving test about a month ago, I went through the letter with my dad though I don't think he grasped fully what it meant. The DVLA were then meant to send a letter with a date and time for the driving test, this has still to my knowledge not been received . My mum called the DVLA to find out what the delay was and they said they could not talk to her due to data protection! My dad has a habit of getting the mail and then hiding it. If this has happened I do not know. But my main concern is that my dad is still driving and is a risk to himself and others. He will not listen to my mum and myself, and gets very upset if we even mention that he may not be able to drive for much longer. What should be my next step? I was thinking of asking at the local police station? I would be greatful for any advice.
