Maurice, I am not sure if your Merniere problem is something you have to inform the DVLA about but I would certainly check with your doctor. I was advised to inform them and was forced to give up driving because I couldn't pass their sight test. If you should have an incident or accident and you haven't informed them then you could be in serious trouble not withstanding insurance problems.
Good luck with your sale Maurice. We had to sell ours 18 months ago and didn't really get what we wanted for it. I am sure you will sell it but be warned to go and hide when it is towed away, Ever seen a grown man cry????
We moved house 9 years ago and until last year we stored our van on the drive without any problems. We live on a main road. Before we did we asked the neighbours if they minded which we felt was important. We had to sell the van last year and now have a large space in the front garden which makes us very sad. We are debating getting another van and storing it on a site where we can get the owners to pitch it for us. Due to eyesight problems I am no longer able to drive and other half doesn't feel confident enough to tackle it. Won't help fill the gap on the front though. If you have the room and it is easy to get it in and out then store at home is the option I would go for
OH hasn't driven much over the years, always relying on me. She took a refresher course last week and the instructor told her she was a good driver but I don't think she is up to driving an M/H. We had a large one 7 years ago and we didn't really like it. It would have to be automatic as she has a hip problem and they aren't that easy to find. Most small ones don't have seperate showers, which is a necessity.
Nor You can take me if you like. I have lost my driving license due to poor eye sight and OH wouldn't tow the van so it has gone. We are now relying on cottages which I have to say are extremely good and a lot less hassle. Still miss the van but life moves on.
I have had my license revoked by the DVLA as I had to inform them that I had had two ops on my eyes. I took the test and failed on peripheral vision. I think the rules that you have to inform them of any health problems yourself makes it very difficult to fill the form in. Eyesight is the one important one they look for. You are probably o.k. if you only have one defective eye as often the other will compensate. Whilst I accept that I have a problem, I do wonder how many people are driving around with poor eyesight. Some people have said to me why did you tell them? I got the impression from my specialist that if I didn't then she would be obliged to. Having a disabilty and not telling the DVLA or your insurance company can void your insurance. Just imagine knocking somebody over or killing your other half in an accident. You would never get over it. It is a life changer but we will get round it somehow. My advice is to tell the truth on the form.
I think your problem may more to do with Explorer. It is notorious at going wrong particularly if it hasn't been updated regularly. Try Firefox. It is a much easier browser to operate and I have never had any trouble with it.
