This is why we enlist our expert motoring solicitors to these cases and help clients to challenge the DVLA’s decision of revoking your licence. We respect the work of the DVLA, but we understand that there are some motorists who have had their licences unfairly revoked in relation to dementia.

If your dementia worsens, and you end up failing to identify roads and road signs, it may be that there is a growing concern and you end up having to surrender your licence. Under dementia and driving rules, remember that you are required to inform the DVLA of dementia, or any other medical condition that could affect your driving.

Failure to tell the DVLA about dementia, or any other medical condition that may affect your driving, can result in a fine. You can contact us here at Caddick Davies for legal advice and we’ll offer the required guidance.
