Dear Mr. Minister:
Renewing Driver’s license
Recently we called the office of Dr. James Wong MD, Calgary Trail, Edmonton,
in regard to the requirement for renewal of Driving License. The phone
receptionist informed us that seniors renewing their license must first undergo
a ‘mental’ test. When we questioned that statement, she strongly informed us that
it was a “requirement” of Alberta Health. She further said that Dr. Wong requires all
senior clients, who wish to renew their driving license, to take the mental test (Simard MD).
Please advise us in regard to this matter.
We would be grateful to be in receipt of your reply by the 22nd of January, 2014.
