Frequently Asked Questions On Epilepsy
Q: Can persons with epilepsy drive?
A: Laws with regards to epilepsy and driving vary from country to country. In general, it is not advisable for persons with epilepsy to drive during the first two years of treatment. Some countries allow driving after an individual has been seizure free for two or more years. Those persons whose fits are not controlled should not drive any vehicle. Similarly, stricter precautions have to be followed for driving heavy goods vehicles or public transport vehicles. In any case, the driving of a vehicle by person with epilepsy should not be a source of danger to the public.
