People often think that having epilepsy means that you are unable to drive. While sometimes this can be true, some people with epilepsy are able to. 

It is important and a legal responsibility that if you hold a driving license that you let the relevant authority know about your epilepsy. In England, Scotland and Wales this is the DVLA.

There are lots of things to consider if you have epilepsy and are planning to drive or already do. This includes changes to seizures, changes to medication, your car insurance and the types of vehicles you are able to drive. 

Epilepsy Action has lots of information about driving with epilepsy and asnwers to many common questions. You can find out more here.
