Maureen has occasional short term memory loss. which does not effect her driving.On 20 October 2011 she had tests which indicated some cognitive disorder .Since that day she has been allowed to continue driving up to 5 April 2013 when she received a letter from DVLA revoking her licence.Two doctors have reassured the DVLA that they can see no reason to stop her from driving. She has NEVER had an accident in 52 years of driving and since the cognitive disorder was diagnosed had driven continuously over 8000 miles without any problems.Surely the DVLA cannot be allowed to withdraw her licence without her having the opportunity to dispute their opinions at a tribunal or Court
