Customer Question
Had injuries from car...

Had injuries from car accident. Voluntarily stopped driving car until I felt stronger. Went to MTO drivers office in London. Was under impression they would just check strength of right foot for purpose of car pedals---- if not strong, they were going to show me how hand controls work---and then I would decide if I wanted training with hand controls.

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is this in? And how old is the car?

This is Ontario Canada

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Yes. But instead of the simple assessment I anticipated, they gave me a number of written tests--- and then insisted I take a full hour of driving on road. I had not driven in over 4 years and was not prepared. Failed this sudden driving test, and then letter they sent to my doctor resulted in my license being medically suspended

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I pleade with the driving instructor and the occupational therapist to NOT take me out into traffic in a major city. I was reluctantly willing to drive in the hospital parking lot but NOT in traffic! It was ALWAYS my intention to retake driver's ed instruction before I tried driving on roads. I ONLY wanted to know about pedals vs. Hand controls. Now, I have no licence to even take lessons! These 2 people insist that I take lessons from them----after this horrifying experience I will NOT go to them----felt betrayed and targeted. Question: How do I now get a licence that will allow me to take lessons? I am most furious about the fact that I VOLUNTARILY stayed away from driving, being a RESPONSIBLE driver. Now I have no way of getting the instruction I need Asking if I can get a license that will be good just for rehab lessons, until I am ready to drive with a regular licence

I am sorry to hear this.

Do you have a doctor that believes you are now able to drive?
