driving - interactive guide

Based on your answers:

When did you have your last seizure?
> Within the last year.
What type of seizures do you have?
> I have asleep seizures only.
Have you ever had awake seizures?
> No - I have never had awake seizures.

The regulation for you:

You can drive after having asleep seizures for 1 year, even if you are still having asleep seizures (as long as you do not have any awake seizures). This is with or without medication. If you have an awake seizure you must stop driving and tell the DVLA.

Please note: To be able to drive you must also meet all normal driving requirements (for example, the standards for vision)

In all cases, you need to tell the DVLA about your situation, and they will need to confirm that you can either drive, or if you need to reapply for your licence, before you can start driving.

If your situation changes (for example, if you have been seizure-free and you have a seizure) you may need to answer the quiz again.
