You just have to sit down and do it. Tell him exactly what you told us.

That their requests are getting in the way of your lifes. Family is supposed to enhance your life, not make it more stressful.

And its OK for them to ask as much as they want, but the two of you as a couple have to be able to say no.

Start with the driving of Father-In-Law. Tell your husband that its starting to get in the way of things you want to do and your own plans. Have him tell his father that they will pick him up when its convenient and you will let him know the day before so he can make plans if need be. 

You just have to tell him, you wont get anywhere without the conversation.

If DH forgets to tell yo about plans, tell him that you reserve the right at all times to say that you do not want to go/attend.

Maybe have a calender for all inlaw plans. He can write anything on there so he doesnt have to remembe to specifically tell you, and 2, he can see how much time is actually being spent with his family.
