Could anyone tell me what is involved in a driving assessment after a head injury? In July 2012 I was involved in a serious car accident and had serious brain injury. I don't remember anything about the accident and informed DVLA and after over a year they have decided I have to have a driving assessment. The best bit is while they have taken time to decide I need an assessment I am allowed to drive. Surely if someone needs an assessment to decide if they are safe to drive they wouldn't be safe driving before it?
I have been driving a few month now and been fine but would like to know what assessments check for? Also when is it decided if I can still drive or not and if I fail will I be able to take another assessment straight away?
