Other diseases that affect the driving skills
Diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, arthritis and diseases like Parkinson's or Alzheimer's are incompatible with driving.

In addition to the normal age-related loss of physical and cognitive skills, the general practitioner has to check whether the patient has other diseases that may affect his/her driving skills. Diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, arthritis and certain neurodegenerative diseases, like Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s, are incompatible with driving.

The general practitioner has to watch and alert the senior driver and his/her nearest relatives about the risk of driving if he/she has any of these diseases. Taking him/her to the respective specialist and recommend a driving skills test are preventive measures, especially in-between the checks to renew the driving license.
