Look, thing is Country boy, there can be no room for error when it comes to driving as i’m sure you’ll agree being the considerate driver i’m sure you are. If you’ve been given a diagnosis of dementia the first thing i would say is we are all here to support you as we’ve all been there one way or another. We are not poking our noses into your business but you have to appreciate that licences are revoked only for good reasons.Hi Jaded’n’faded obviously you have strong views on whether a person with dementia should drive thats not a problem and your correct that possibly a large percentage of people with dementia shouldn’t be given a driving licence,
but were not all the same ,
but I’m sorry I don’t agree because a person struggles with TV remote control there not safe to drive if thats correct not only would that place me in that category but also my Wife who doesn’t have dementia and struggles with TV remote and possibly quite a few others.
I can’t agree with your epilepsy because we all know the driving licence is revoked automatically
But lets see What does the law say about driving and dementia
I live every day as though it were my last because one day i'll be right
My wife ( who has vascular dementia) had hers extended for one extra year and then cancelled on advice from the doctor. I was glad as she was becoming forgetful and less able to make quick decisions, much needed for today’s traffic. A decision to cancel a license is never taken lightly but after consultations with all those involved in your diagnosis.
If you’re not sure get a test and let the experts decide. Be aware though that they may only let you extend for a limited period.
Sorry to labour this but safety comes first
