Sometimes they want to judge for themselves.
If you get the form you will know what I mean.
Has he been tested positive?
Thank you for replying. Yes he has been :-( x

Hi Shelly

After my husband's test was positive they said he could attend a specialist test centre to be assessed for driving and I think they renew the licences on a yearly basis. He decided to give up driving himself as he can't trust his concentration levels now.
