Drives a car so cannot be disabled

Had several bundles recently where the HCP report mentions that the claimant drives a car. This is taken in a rather glib way to indicate that they cannot have any mental or physical problems as driving a car is a complex cognitive task involving a degree of physical ability. No reference to the Reg 4 criteria is ever evident (I know that this neglect is always the case with HCP reports) and there is no assessment of variability.

Does anyone else come across this? maybe worth some policy work.
