Whoopi Goldberg is done cruising the open road after revealing she's longer allowed to drive due to poor eyesight.
"I have a driver," she said while hosting "The View" on Monday. "The reason I have a driver is because I am not allowed to drive. My sight is not good enough, people get nervous when I get behind the wheel, so, I am not allowed to really drive."
The beloved host's health has been a topic of conversation over the past few months after she revealed that she nearly died in February from pneumonia and sepsis.
"I am here, I am up and moving around, not as fast as I'd like to be, but I am OK," she told her fans at the time. "So here is what happened. I had pneumonia, and I was septic. Pneumonia in both lungs which meant there was fluid and all kinds of stuff going on and yes I came very, very close to leaving the earth. Good news? I didn't."

That's how it was. You think that because you've healed quick before that something crazy can't happen, well, it can. Double pneumonia and sepsis. They had to pump a lot of stuff out of me."
She was back in the hospital in April after coming down with a 24-hour bug.
