especially since she just crashed into our wall. Worried what/who else she might hit!

How bad will you feel when someone is injured.

Report immediately.

Yes I would report. Not U at all. This could prevent a collision where an innocent person is killed.

You'd be just as culpable as her if you'd known and not done anything about it and she kills or injures some one. Could you live with that on your conscious?

Grapejuicerocks Sat 27-Feb-16 11:58:21

Conscience even

Has she had her license revoked on medical grounds? Definitely report the wall incident and call 999 if you see her get behind the wheel again.

Not formally revoked. She had brain surgery in Dec and apparently doctor told her not to drive until he said she could. He told her at their last meeting that he wanted to do more tests before saying she could drive but she is basically fed up and ignoring him 'because it is not official from the DVLA'.
Who to/how would I report it?

I'd call 101 and let them know, they may ask you to call the DVLA, but will be able to give you the relevant number

Of course you should report
For her sake as much as anyone else's. And her insurance will be invalid if she's driving against doctor's advice.

Sorry about double post!

Yes call 101 and tell them, especially make them clear about the wall crash because i suspect she has not informed her insurance about any of this and it needs recording.

I would imagine that her insurance isn't valid if she's been told not to drive for medical reasons, so yes, it needs to be reported.

This seriously needs reporting because her insurance would also be invaild.

You can be fined up to £1,000 if you don’t tell DVLA about a medical condition that affects your driving. You may be prosecuted if you’re involved in an accident as a result.

This is from the DVLA website.

It does need reporting. Next time it may not be a wall she hits.

She should have reported the brain surgery to the DVLA. There is a fine of £1,000 for anyone who doesn't report a medical condition that could affect their ability to drive. Brain surgery is usually followed by a year's ban on driving, mainly because it can result in fits etc. She should have informed the DVLA (her responsibility) and they decide if she is fit to drive or not, or how long she shouldn't be driving. Even when her Dr says she is OK, then she has to wait for the DVLA's decision. They would review her medical notes etc and confirm whether she is fit to drive. Its on the say so of the DVLA not the Dr, although obviously the Dr's input is considered. Obviously driving as she is at the moment she is risking her life and others. If she were to have an accident, her insurance would be invalid. I think you should contact the medical dept at the DVLA(try their website for contact details). The possibility of her having an unexpected fit and causing an accident is enough to justify you doing so.

This thread has been playing on my mind and I was wondering if OP would be kind enough to update us? she really could be the cause of a bad accident sad

Remember the Glasgow bin lorry accident? Innocent people killed and families destroyed because someone who shouldn't have been behind the wheel was driving. Report her, what if she hurts someone you care about or kills a child?

Her insurance may be invalid if she is driving against medical advice, so her car insurance may not pay for your wall to be repaired (if that's how it works?) I would report to the police immediately.

Although i think nothing will be done you should at least try and report it before she causes anothwr accident and tell her to stop driving. If you can maybe you could drive her somewjere once in a while
