I was diagnosed in January 2014, came like a bolt out of the blue, I am a 57 year old female, dont smoke or drink, eat a healthy diet, walk a lot. A Datscan confirmed the PD after a year of constant shaking in my right hand, even then the neurologist was unconvinced which gave me false hope.
My PD nurse told me I must inform the DVLA, so I sent off the forms. I feel fit to drive, the only thing is my right hand does a jig on the wheel. Apparently its against the law for insurance companies to bump up your premium because of PD, if you are declared fit to drive, I suppose thats what the DVLA will determine on the information you give. I have never liked driving anyway, but if you rely on the car for work or you dont have a good bus service, its a blow.
