I work in this area of support.

The DVLA will have given a PDAL - Provisional Disability Assessment Licence.
This will have been for an Assessment and possible Lessons.
If the Assessment Centre recommend he is not capable then the DVLA will revoke the licence.
If they decide that with help, he may improve then that will be on his report.
They may suggest an automatic would help.
He can then get lessons with a view to a re assessment.

Given time he may medically improve and can then ask for a reassessment.

He can only be considered on medical grounds not on driving ability.

Please give us more details.
How old is he?

tosie is in contact with me.

The ones I object to are those you take time to give advice to and then there is no feedback from them !!
