Last year my hubby had his driving license revoked after declaring an operation he had in November 2010 to insert a shunt for NPH, (which is now untreatable). He was having his license renewed every three years because he is a Type 1 Diabetic but losing his license for six months was devastating for him and he became really aggressive and extremely difficult to be with. I'm his registered Carer and took the full brunt of his frustration. Every single day, several times a day it was all he wanted to talk about. The DVLA contacted the Neuro Surgeon for a report, but they decided they needed to get a report from his Diabetic Consultant. He rang them on a regular basis as he has a Motability car and couldn't send it back or apply for the Motability element of his DLA until a final decision had been made. He has many hospital appointments in Southampton, Lymington, Bournemouth and recently Salisbury and public transport isn't cheap. They eventually sent a questionaire about his likelihood of falling asleep behind the wheel. (I kid you not) and was told that all the reports were being sent to their Medical Officers for review and a decision would reach us within eight weeks. We had a duplicate letter four weeks later. Finally, he was told he had to pay to have a medical with his GP. He made an appointment but was told they hadn't had the paperwork. DVLA told him they had sent it, but today when he went for his medical no paperwork had been received, but the GP said if it turned up he would fill it in without examining my husband as in his opinion he was fit to drive! My husband is a nightmare on the road and when I told the GP this his response was, 'you don't have to get in the car' I live with my husband, his obssessions, anxieties and various health conditions but my GP thinks he knows him better based on a 10 minute chat. I'm so fed up with the whole situation. If I go against JY husband my life won't be worth living but my conscience tells me he shouldn't be allowed on the road.
