One of the hardest things about Enduring Epilepsy can be transportation. I’ve never had a drivers license in my life. (I’ve never even tried being behind the wheel). While having epilepsy doesn’t absolutely forbid someone from driving, there are laws that can make it difficult. Each state has its own legislation, but the general rule is that someone must go 6 months seizure-free before they can drive. This can be particularly difficult if you cannot stabilize your epilepsy. In many cases, if you have even one seizure, your license can be revoked.
Nevertheless, this is understandable. By monitoring the drivers licenses of epilepsy patients the government is looking out for the safety of everyone. You wouldn’t want to take a seizure while driving and be in an automobile accident; hurting yourself or others.
