Visual inattention and CP

I recently had a driving assessment for adapted controls and the assessor picked up on a right visual inattention and told me I wasn't safe to drive. I'm a bit shocked at this as I don't think I have any of the symptoms of an inattention in my day to day life.
Is there any link between CP and an inattention? I can't help thinking if I've had it all my life it should have been noticed by my therapists or teachers as a child. I'm also a bit worried that I might have developed it as an adult and might not be aware I have it.
Has anyone else been diagnosed at a driving assessment with an inattention or have an inattention?
