    One of my Mothers neighbours told her she should not be driving nearly a year ago .......Mother refused to speak to her since

    AA Man was called out 5 times in Jan/feb .....Mother claimed garage had put something in the car !!!!!!!
    AA Man wrote .......batty old woman ....on the report sheet
    I suspect he reported her to DVLA but it took them nearly 3 months to send her a licence revocation letter

    She is 90 and to my knowledge she was not called for a medical or a test
    She blames her GP and says he is spiteful for saying she cant drive

    However i am thankful she can no longer pose a danger to others and friends at my daughters wedding 13 years ago saw my Mothers driving then and said .....ouch

    So personally I would like to see the system they have in New Zealand where every driver over 75 has to go for a test every year

    Instead of the self certification nonsense we have here every 3 yrs after age 70
