I CAN NOT seem to fix this sentence for passive voice. Please help.
If any one of the above motor skills is impaired; then the elderly driver's license should be taken by law.
In this sentence the word 'one' serves no useful purpose. Presumably, a person's licence would be taken away if two or more skills were impaired. Also, why should this apply only to an elderly driver? It doeesn't make much sense without further context. Without further information, I'd suggest this:
If any of a driver's motor skills are impaired, their driver's license (AM. Eng.) driving licence (Br. Eng.) should, by law, be taken away.
N.B. When "any" means one or more, we use a plural verb.
