One year to the day since my husbands craniotomy and here we are thrilled by the prospect that he is 1 step closer to regaining his licence. Today he had his off road driving assesment, I know we are so lucky to get to this stage with a GBM. I wanted to post this as an incentive to others to not give up on your wishes.

A lot of work. We had to go through Rehab at the hospital (luckily he has no physical disability after surgery). He had visual perception problems which have mended, so had to see the eye clinic at hospital. Through a few months work he was given a letter for RMS (RTA) to say he is medically fit to drive. Got a learners permit and had to do a test (off road) with an Occupational Therapist and with passing all this so far he will now do a on road test with OT. He is very keen to drive again and wishes to get his riders licence back too (our cancer coordinator not in favour of that).
