If you drive, you can't be disabled?
I won my Tribunal appeal but both the doctor and the judge thought that driving indicates a low level of disability. I had to stress that I make only a few, very short car journeys a week. And a number of other community members have reported similar experiences. Some disabled people would be housebound if they didn't drive. Why is there this apparently new view that someone who drives can't be very disabled?
