"Are You Healthy? Are You Crazy?" Getting a Panamanian Driver's License if You're Over 70

Jan Knight writes on the Panama Forum that her husband, who is 78 years old, recently applied for a Panamanian driver's license. Apparently anyone over the age of 70 must have a letter from a doctor stating that he is healthy and mentally stable (i.e. not senile).

They went to a doctor who looked at Jan's husband and said, "Are you healthy?"


"Are you crazy?"


The doctor looked at Jan for confirmation of these facts, then wrote the letter out by hand.
