This is another query about the sticky issue of driving licences so apologies for any repetition.
My driving licence is up for review in January 2022 and I am unsure how this is going to work in terms of medical evidence when nobody has actually seen me either face-to-face or by means of a much dreaded video call for over 2 years.
I have managed to cling onto some services so have had a phone consultation with a neurologist though I am new on his caseload and he has never met me. I can’t go to see my own GP because it is impossible to get an appointment of any sort with my GP practice and the specialist nursing service is under extreme pressure and I dare not contact them with anything other than an emergency situation or urgent need for a medication review.
Will my my neurologist be able to give medical evidence about my fitness to drive based on a phone consultation only? If I’m going to need to try and see somebody face to face before December then I am going to need to start working on this right now.
I know that sooner or later I will need to give up my licence but I don’t feel that I’m at that point yet and I wish to be able to drive for as long as I can but I am aware that I am as capable as the next person of over-estimating my capabilities and being able to talk to somebody who knows me and has met me in person has previously provided a safety net. I don’t know how this works now .
