Seizures and Driving

What If I'm Not Allowed to Drive?

Ask your doctor about medicines that are designed to prevent seizures and how those medicines might affect your ability to drive a car safely.
 
You can keep your independence even if you have to give up driving until you have been seizure-free for long enough to get your license back. It may take planning ahead on your part, but planning will help get you to the places you want to go and the people you want to see.
 
Consider the following options:
 
  • Rides with family and friends
  • Taxi cabs
  • Shuttle buses or vans
  • Public buses, trains, and subways
  • Walking.
     
As a final note, senior centers and religious and other local service groups often offer transportation services.
