New Driving Laws from Today

UK driving laws change today!

while this won't change anything for me hopefully it will give lots of people their independence back.

The main changes are:

  • if you only have nocturnal seizures you can apply if you have only had these and no other seizures for 1 year (it used to be 3 years)
  • if you have only ever had seizures that don't effect your conciousness you can reapply a year after diagnosis even if you are still having seizures
  • if you change your medication and have a seizure and then go back to the medication which made you seizure free for a year before you only need to be seizure free for 6months before reapplying.
There are other more complex rules but contact the DVLA for more info on them:
