Correct me if I am wrong but isn't it an offence in the 1988 Road Traffic Act if you drive a vehicle that you cannot control at all times. Not just for PWP but every driver in the land.
THis being the case what's all this beurocracy about telling the DVLA you have PD, filling in forms and getting consulants to tick a few boxes ? A waste of all our time. And as for the DVLA medical group taking 2 months in making a decision to revoke your licence based on tick box. What a good, well paid job for some.
YES PWP must be reminded that they commit an offence if they drive a vehicle that they cannot control at all times.
YES PWP should retake a driving test when the cosultant says so.
YES PWP should have a medical when the consultant says so
but all the forms to filll, letters going back and forth,telephoning to chase delayed decisions, cannot really be justified in my opinion
Will Parkinsons UK support reforming the process for controlling driving licences for PWp ?
take care !
