FAQ - Guardianship

What happens to the driver's license of an incapacitated adult?

Most of the time, when a guardian is appointed the incapacitated adult loses their ability to obtain or keep a driver's license.  The Court may allow the person to keep or get a license is they are presented with enough evidence to show that they can safely operate a vehicle.

If you believe that they should be allowed to drive, you must specifically request that in your petition and must include medical (or other) evidence that they are able to drive safely.
