My husband has been diagnosed recently with maybe having Parkinson’s. He is on no medication and now we have just received a letter from the DVLA saying his licence is going down to a medical licence. Is this what happens ? We also tow a caravan so not sure now if we will be over the allowance. Any advice would be grateful. Thank you. Jacqui

I am sure other members will be able to share their own experiences of their contact with the DVLA, but in the meantime you can find more information about driving and Parkinson’s here: https://www.parkinsons.org.uk/information-and-support/driving-and-parkinsons.

Glad to see your thread here. I’m also a newbie here. Welcome to the community.

Hi @Jacqui1,
I was diagnosed a year ago and now have a 3yr driving licence.it is the same as my old one and I have towed horse trailers and caravans for years. So I see no reason why your husbands 3yr licence shouldn’t prevent him from towing

Hi you should be able to tow upto 3and half ton thats weight of caravan and car together if you have entitlement of 7.5t on licence you can tow more heavier unit hope this helps
