Abstract
Cognitive impairment can interfere with the fitness to drive. An increase in requests to assess this aspect is observed at Leenaards Memory Centre. Changes in the law could be an explanatory factor. The views formulated in 2019 are mainly unfavorable because all the patients present cognitive disorders, generally attributed to Alzheimer's disease or a related disorder, but never linked with aging only. Moreover, unfavorable views are frequently expressed before the age of 75. Therefore, each patient is unique, and each decision is based neither on the patient's age or his diagnosis, but rather on his cognitive profile. In this article we discuss the reasons for an unfavorable view and discuss them in the context of the tasks of our centre.
