I was diagnosed with RRMS in March of this year and informed the DVLA as instructed to do so. I have now received a letter from the DVLA saying that they have had information telling them that i may need my vehicle adapted with special controls. I then have two options – one to fill out a form, ticking what adaptions i would like or the other to sign a declaration stating that i do not want any adaptions. The letter states that if i do not reply within 14 days they could revoke my license and politely informs me in bold and capitals that i may be commiting an offence if i cannot safely drive my vehicle. As it is, i dont feel like i need any adaptions at all and nothing has been mentioned to me regarding any of this at appointments etc. Obviously seeing things like these “warnings” puts worries in your mind straight away as i can’t do without my car and i do not want to be liable for anything in the future if i just sign the declaration. I rang the number on the letter who just asked me to ring a local office. They said they’d not heard of a letter like this but if i wanted an assessment to phone back. The DVLA themselves were really unhelpful and quite rude at times just telling me to sign which i wanted to but literally thats all i got from them and No further advice. My MS nurses have never heard of a letter like this either and said to try disability services for advice but they also couldn’t help as it was out of their remit. I feel extremely stuck and not sure what to do as like i say, i have no problems driving but don’t want to sign a declaration and then be liable for anything. There is no mention of only having a license for 3 years which i know has happened to people with MS previously.
Has anyone else had a letter like this or any advice? Thanks in advance.
