Not sure, that sounds unusual....never heard of being asked that for getting a license renewed.

I don't know but I find it ironic. Here in Tx you are usually entitled to at least 4 DWI/DUI convictions before you need to worry about facing any serious consequences
driver's license revoked due to BP

That is very weird, I've never been asked that. I don't Remember them ever asking me anything other than is this still your address?

I live in Louisiana and I've never heard that before...
But my boyfriend said it's just part of a questionnaire they have to ask and they change it every year.

I've been asked that a few times before when I was getting car and bike licenses but I always say no.

Default Re: Got license renewed, they asked if I had mental illness?

I had my license taken away (due to a newly diagnosed seizure disorder) in Ca, when I was 26 years old. A few years later, I had to apply to have the license reinstated. I was also asked if I had diabetes, mental illness, or some other condition in which I may lose consciousness.

There are mental illnesses in which consciousness is lost or significantly impaired, and I believe that's what they're asking for. I don't KNOW that, of course, just a guess though.

In Texas that is one of the standard questions on the renewal form. I just answered no because it doesn't in any way affect my driving.

None of their business as long as you are safe to drive.
