Dear Madam:

Reference: Driver license renewal

Please advise us.

What gives your department the authority to demand that Alberta senior citizens, who apply to have their driving licenses renewed, be subjected to a Simard MD test or be referred for testing to DriveAble, a private for profit agency?

We would be grateful to be in receipt of your response by the 12th of July, 2012.

Thank you.

Yours truly,

Elder Advocates of Alberta Society
