“If you’re ill and you’re confused, you’re ill and you’re confused. It doesn’t matter where you are.”

Edward Trewhella, expert at Drive Mobility said the new proposals would allow elderly drivers to go to the shops by themselves or visit immediate family members.

He said many drivers preferred staying local at an older age and the new rules would simply “regularise” it.

However, Mr Freeman said there should be “no middle ground” and would be a risk “never worth taking”.
