Driving Deaf

Should deaf people be allowed to get driver's licenses? I bet being born deaf and inheriting deafness affects you very differently. People born deaf probably could be amazing drivers, because their vision is probably much more reactive than mine. But, if I went deaf tomorrow, I'd probably start running over pedestrians and getting run down by ambulances pretty quick. So, what do we do? Just see if they can pass the regular test? That'd probably be much less divisive than my other driving test idea.
