My father (88 yrs old) was diagnosed with Alzheimer's about 5 years ago but has passed his drivers exam since then, but about one year ago he failed to pass his written exam for driver liscense renewal. I found out he has been driving anyway and telling others that other people were driving him around in his car. The police say they cannot do anything unless they catch him in the act. I need to stop him before he hurts himself or others!
I asked the police what the MN law was concerning license plates when a vehicle is sold, and they said it is up to the owner to either sell the vehicle with plates or to keep the plates (i.e. personalized plates). Father says he still has insurance on the vehicle. I believe the Dr who diagnosed him with Alzheimer's recommended he not drive. Since that was five years past, would that still be valid in dealing with MN DMV?
