Can legal steps be taken to revoke an elderly parent's driver's license?

2 Answers. Asked on Feb 22nd, 2013 on Elder Law - Florida
More details to this question:
My father's primary care physician (based in Ohio since since he lives in Ohio half of the year) submitted the Florida DMV Medical Reporting form since he possesses a Florida driver's license. Is this taken seriously by the DMV? He is suffering from early dementia and the doctor told him to give up driving yet he refuses to give up his keys. He is 89 years old.

Take the Doctor's report to a local DMV office amd talk to a supervisor.

You should get a quick result.

Yes this can happen. If it is not justified, hire a lawyer and get a doctor to oppose the other doctor.

Elder Law
As adults age, they often lose some mental acuity while also facing more physical limitations. These health conditions put senior citizens at greater risk of exploitation and abuse. At the same time, the elderly need to think about their long-term medical and financial needs, and make estate plans to ensure their legacy after they pass away. An elder law attorney can work with seniors and their families to address issues such as advanced directives, powers of attorney, living wills and last wills and testaments. Elder law lawyers can also help families intervene if a guardianship or conservatorship is necessary. And personal injury law firms with experience in elder issues can help victims of elder abuse and nursing abuse take civil and criminal legal actions against their abusers.
