Prognosis: Driving after a Stroke?

My father, 71, just survived a left hemisphere intercranal hemmoraghic stroke
due to high blood pressure last month.	The main effect has been on his
speech, which has been improving nicely.  Motor skills are also ok.  He
doesn't feel competant to drive, however due to the following symptom: 
although his near and far vision seems fine, when he's in a car, he has
difficulty concentrating and focusing on road signs.  This doesn't seem to be
related so much to his eyes as to the way his brain processes rapid images. 
My question here is: has anyone experienced this type of symptom and can
share how long it took for this symptom to improve, if it ever did?  Thank
you.
