So my driving test was cancelled in April due to COVID, and again in July, so I currently don’t have a date.

I was diagnosed with ASD a few days ago, and I know that doesn’t impact driving, however my spatial reasoning was in the 30th or lower percentile, and my cognitive processing speed was in the lowest percentile.

Should I tell my driving instructor about this? Could it stop me from getting my license?

I’m worried about the cognitive bit not being able to react fast enough, and the spacious bit, about misjudging distance and hitting someone/something. Is this a valid worry? Should I still be allowed to take the test?

Hi, I asked a driving instructor I know and they said that if you have any medical needs that may impact your spatial awareness etc or ability to drive like you have mentioned that you must mention it before your test. Don’t worry, this doesn’t mean you won’t be able to take the test for certain, they just need to be aware of it! I don’t think you will be stopped from having the test but just make sure you make your instructor aware.
