The dangers of a sudden seizure are a very serious concern for a Care recipient (cr) with epilepsy who still drives caregivers cgs should be aware of these risks and take the steps necessary to minimize them

Try: Do not allow the cr to drive if he or she is having seizures that would be dangerous on the road every state restricts driving for crs with seizures states typically require that you be seizure free for either 3 6 12 or 24 months from the date of the seizure depending on circumstances and doctor’s recommendations make sure the cr is honest with the doctor about seizures safety is more important than retaining driving privileges be honest with the department of motor vehicles dmv and use their driving form it may protect you legally if problems later occur the cr usually has a personal legal obligation to report seizures to the dmv also remember that the dmv not the doctor makes the decision on driving in most states exceptions do exist but contact your local dmv for further
