Can anyone tell me how long it takes for the DVLA to make a decision about a person with Cerebeller Ataxia being able to drive. My friend has suffered with this for about a year now, and only recently informed the DVLA. He has had an initial letter back saying they have to put his case before a team of doctors, so it may take some time. He has been driving on and off since he was diagnosed, but now has a brace type contraption on his foot which helps him no end. I am sure he will end up being very distressed and depressed if they do stop him driving altogether. Any advice would be appreciated please.
