Should I disclose my disability on appilacation

I've had Parkinson Disease for about 2 and half years. People can tell that I have PD except when they see my hands shaking from time to time, but mostly when I to do any hand writing which is getting worse.

I applied for it and later went to a potluck lunch with someone and the higher-ups asked me to fill out an application so I could be part of their team. It involves driving and in the past I hadn't paid much attention to a driving score. Doing the last four or five years I lost my dad and my husband and during those times I received tickets during each occasion…
