Under the epilepsy driving rules, it is required that you inform the DVLA about your epilepsy if you have the condition and wish to hold a driving licence for the first time. This law applies for both Group 1 (motor car, motorcycle and moped drivers) and Group 2 (lorries, trucks and other large vehicles) licence holders.

Should you be diagnosed with epilepsy while you already have a driving licence, it is wise to inform the DVLA or have your GP inform the Driving Agency of your condition. After this, you may need to surrender your driving licence, as this prevents you from having your licence revoked, which is harder to rectify than surrendering. Surrendering your driving licence speeds up your chance of getting back your driving licence.

Am I allowed to drive again?

There are some motorists across the country who believe that they will never be allowed to hold a driving licence because they have epilepsy. This, however, is often not the case. There are many cases in which you can continue driving after being diagnosed with epilepsy. If you meet the medical standards for driving under the existing epilepsy and driving rules, you can apply for a driving licence.

For those whose licences get revoked or surrendered, you can re-apply for the driving licence up to 8 weeks before the date you meet the legal standards for driving. This, in most cases, is 12 months after their last seizure, but it can be determined by the type of seizure the person had.

Prior to reapplying, check with your doctor if you are fit to drive, then order and complete the D1 pack if you are a Group 1 licence holder or the D2 pack for those who hold Group 2 licence. You will be required to fill in the medical questionnaire yourself and give details about your seizures. You will also be required to give to the DVLA the contact details of your GP and give them permission to enquire about your fitness to drive.
