My brother was diagnosed with alcohol related dementia (Korsakoff's syndrome) but discharged from hospital as "medically fit". The family took the decision to remove his car since every time he leaves his home he forgets where he lives. This caused him a lot of distress where he continually asks where his car is (even after being told numerous times). Does anyone know what the legal definition of "medically fit" is in this context, can you have dementia and be medically fit? Should he be allowed to drive? There seems to be nothing official that says he can't drive. The family tried to adopt a common sense approach but will very little guidance from the medical profession. Searching the web it is suggested that the DVLA is informed so his licence is revoked but what if his condition (memory) improves, would he have to retake his test? I believe he could probably drive but suspect he would get lost every time he left home. Any advice appreciated.
