Has anyone had difficulty renewing their Driver's license?
I have resorted to using a walker. Recently when I went to renew my Driver's license I was asked why I needed the walker. When I was honest and told the gentleman that I had Orthostatic Tremors he typed it into the computer and told me that he would have to report this to Tallahassee, Florida.
This happened in June of 2010. I was told that I would receive a Medical Report form in the mail. I have not yet received it. I found the number online for the Medical Review Board in Tallahassee and then called them. When I spoke with them they told me that they have not made a decision yet whether to send me the medical report form. They said they needed to know if the disease is progressive or not. I know that it is progressive, however, this time I kept my mouth shut. They said they would get back to me that afternoon. Which was July 20. It is now July 22 and still no word. I called again today and left my name, Driver's license number and phone number. Still no call.
I did get a 30 day extention on my license on July 20th to try and resolve this matter. I have an appointment with my doctor on August 3, 2010. Hoping they can straighten out this mess if I can't do it on my own.
I have a Mother with Alhezimer's Disease that I have been helping care for that lives in another town. I am worried that I will not be able to get around to help out.
